I have been doing alot of reading and messing around trial and error until I came across this PaPa Johns site.I am trying to learn to make my own mini movies with the kids and grandkids growing up and I have learned a good bit in just a few weeks and eager to learn alot more.Is there anything I should be interested in changing or upgrading in the computer?
Thanks, Barbie

I forgot to say I added plextor dvdr DX-708A and also have pinnacle studios 8 but have been using the windows movie maker 2.



Hi Barbie.... for some reason the forum software won't give me the option to reply to your post.... just wanted to ask if your hard drive uses the NTFS file system so it doesn't have any file size limit.... so I went into your post and edited it.
