    I am attempting to copy 4 gigs of music files onto a DVD-R. I used Winrar to compress the files but I can't figure out how to copy them onto a dvd disc.

    do you a dvd writer software on the PC - usually comes with PC
    sonic
    roxio
    nero

    vista and xp will allow you just to copy the files onto the dvd - make sure you finalise the dvd so you can use on other machines
