Thanks to a lot of advice and help from all of you I have made a few purchases and am having a friend install them next week (DVD drive, Fire wire, Canopus 100). I love my music and youâ€™ve also been helpful with which CD-R disks are best (seems like Taiyo Yuden and or Ritek). Now it comes to burning & editing software. As far as the burning the main three Iâ€™ve heard the most about are #1. Nero 6 #2. Blaze Media Pro and #3. RecordNow Max. Editing, Iâ€™m up for suggestions. What I want is one that has the most options, easy to understand and use, and with good support. One thing I like about Nero (as far as recording CDâ€™s) is the ability to eliminate that pause between recordings, but Iâ€™ve tried downloading their burning suite 6 and for some reason have had trouble establishing it on my system. I downloaded & installed Blaze Media Pro, and while I loved the sound reproduction there was a pop before every song and a couple of times it came up with a warning that my system resources were low, & it froze a couple of times (maybe these are things that can be fixed). Well I digress. If you have any ideas concerning some of the products Iâ€™ve mentioned above (especially first hand experience), or have some other products or ideas that will help me get the best out of my audio, and the clearest cleanest results on my video (transferring VHS to DVD & copying & burning CDâ€™s & DVDâ€™s). Please Lay it On Me.
