I am trying to 'drop' my video (from 'downloads') into the left panel of the disk utility. It will not drop. Why?

What do you mean? Please be more descriptive. If you want to burn a file to a CD, use Brasero or some other CD/DVD burner. –  edwin Aug 24 '13 at 23:54
It is simply not the way CD burning works, ...and the Disk Utility has nothing to do with CDs. –  mikewhatever Aug 24 '13 at 23:56
Well, lets start by asking, what format is the file that you want to burn? Do you want to create a video DVD, playable on DVD players, or just a file that you can play on your computer? –  Mitch Aug 25 '13 at 8:01
