Default burning a video on a cd writer?

so my computer has a cd writer / dvd rom and i need to burn this 10 minute long video onto a cd, i wouldnt think this would be possible (because i dont have a dvd burner) but i've done it before i just dont remember how i did it, but i know its possible, before i used a dvd cd to do it, the video is only around 120 mb. whenever i try to do it via windows media player or opening the D drive inserting the video and pressing "write to cd" it tells me i dont have a blank cd to write it with. can anyone tell me how to be able to do this? thanks a lot! btw the cd im using now to do it with is the exact same cd as i burned the other video with, and im positive the cd im usin is blank

Then get a USB stick. They go for about $10 for the size you need. Then you wont have this problem.

To elaborate on what EricB said...

A data cd is just the file, like on your hd, but on a cd. You browse to it on the computer and play it.

A VCD is a video-cd, it will play on -some- DVD players. You need special software for this. Pretty sure nero and ati can both do it, or google VCD burner and I'm sure you'll find something.

ok but before i do that r u sure its not the cd im using? because when i try to burn it it says no writable CD detected, is it maybe because the cd is "16x" ? the other one i burned the movie on was 8x, maybe 16 is too fast or somethin
