I hope this doesn't sound like a stupid question! but I bought some plain blank dvd discs to transfer files on to, which side up do i put a disc in my computer? only both sides look the same!!Cheers
Very shiny side face down.
what brand of disks have you bought. spuds advice is not 100% true. some makes of dvd r/rw disks, the very shiny side is the top, not the write side.
The side that goes down usually is a purple-ish colour (the dye).
should have said (doh) just put the disk in, if its the correct way up a dialoge box will open (in winxp, other versions of windows i'm not sure) if disk is upside down nothing will happen.
