Some iPods let you create and watch movies. These movies can be copied to a blank DVD disc so that you can create a backup to a secondary media device in case your iPod crashes and you cannot recover the media. Apple provides you with iTunes, which is software used to synchronize your iPhone with a computer. The videos can then be copied to your iTunes library on the hard drive from where you can copy them to your blank DVD.
Insert the blank DVD disc into your burner. Next, attach the iPod to your computer using the USB cable. When you insert the USB cable with the iPod attached, iTunes automatically opens.
Click the "iPod" icon on the left panel of the iTunes window. If you are prompted to sync, click "Cancel." Click the "Videos" icon under the iPod label. Click each video you want to transfer and drag and drop the video to the "Libraries" section in the left panel. This copies the file from your iPod to the iTunes local directory on the computer.
Click the Windows "Start" button on your computer. Click the "Computer" icon to open Windows Explorer. Double-click the "C" drive. Navigate to the location of your iTunes videos directory.
Click the Windows "Start" button again. Click "Computer" and double-click the drive letter for your burner. You now have a window opened with a list of your videos and a window showing your blank DVD.
Drag and drop your video files from the iTunes directory to the burner window. Your video files copy to the DVD.
