Can someone explain to me how to do this step by step? I've tried watching u Tube, but it either too fast, or I get bombarded with uncessary loud overkill music which puts me right off. I have aspbergers and I find it a bit overwhelming.

Many thanks.

Hopefully someone familiar with Nero will help, but gee there are a lot better, and less resource hungry burning software apps out there. Seeing you prefer not to use Youtube for helpful videos you may instead like to download the manual. This link HERE shows you how to get the manual from within your Nero application.

what about the inbuilt burner that has been in WIndows since.... XP was it?
I was only using it in Win10 yesterday to burn a video to a DVD disc.

right click on the file/s you want to burn and select Send To and select the DVD unit.
Windows says something like You have files waiting to be burnt and gives a prompt to burn now or later.

No nothing of Nero since ceasing to use it years ago, much better free, less resource hogging software available.

Read the manual as per the link in post 2.

I'm really stuck with Nero platinum 2018 at the moment. I've tried importing all the files, but I keep getting a message saying Unable to insert C:\Users\Louise Topp\Videos\Babbacoomb village.nvc.

How can I sort this please? Otherwise, i might have to reload the photo files and use Ashampoo.

It doesn't matter where the files come from, Nero, Ashampoo or whatever simply burns files (data, music, movies etc) to CD or DVD.
I's then an issue with the playing device as to whether that burnt disc can be read.
So you have two issues; getting a program to burn your disc and burning it in a format the receiving device can use.

Ok thanks very much, its been a learning curve. About Ashampoo. If i was to burn some photo's onto a disk, what tab in Ashampoo do I choose please?

Is it disk image? I'm not too sure I hope you didn't mind me asking?

No, it’s not disk image.
That’s a backup method where your entire hard drive is snapshotted to a DVD.
I haven’t used Ashampoo but the ones I have used, they make it pretty obvious, you usually want to make a data disc, you select the files to include then there is a Burn now sort of button.
It’s a sort of exercise you may have to sacrifice a few discs until you get the options right that allows that CD to be played in the device you want.
