"Dear editor, is there any DVD burning software that I could use to burn Halloween videos to DVD disc? It’s a tradition for our family to record a Halloween video clip for our baby girl Cloris. This year, my husband and I pretended that we ate all her Halloween candies and secretly filmed her reaction. So cute! She tried really hard to draw back her tears, but eventually, she cried out. Then we told her candies were still there. She did not quite buy it at first, but when she found her candies, she smiled back again. We do hope we can burn that video clip together with other videos into a DVD and when Cloris grows up, she will see how cute she used to be. Do you know how to burn those Halloween video clips into DVD? Would you give me any suggestion?"
