Yes, you will need to create a data DVD or CD.

It shouldn't really matter what speed you burn your disks at.

I believe XP has a built-in disc burning feature but there are several other programmes out there which you can use if you want to try something else. Nero is just one example.

Try ImgBurn. It's a freeware program & clever enough to burn the CD/DVD in the correct format for what's on the disc. Best not to use the XP routine though.
