We all love movies and video clips that we download from time to time from the internet. We also have a lot of stuff on our computer hard drives that we need to back up in order to free space for other stuff which could be more videos. DVDs come in handy in these situations and are the most common way to backup and store files. They are especially very convenient when you need to burn DVD with videos that will work with most DVD players.
