I installed Snap3 and it works very well once you figure it out. I wasn't about to touch the others although the burning suite looked good. I don't need it though, between Sonic Digital Media Plus that came on this machine and the free ImgBurn, I can do anything.

Even burn a DVD from an avi file in one step ???  :)

I can do that with DVD Flick--a great free program that I've had for a while.

Thanks for posting the info about the free Ashampoo products Bob  ;D. I decided to try the burning suite and I like it. It has more capabilities than Digital Media Plus including making bootable discs, creating backup archives on external drives, ripping CD's, more image file type support, built in Lightscribe labeling ability and lots of other labelling options, Blu-ray support (which I can't use yet but maybe some day). The DVD authoring feature is kind of redundant because you can burn the DVD folders as a data disc and it will play perfectly, I've done it that way before.

Overall, the program is  pretty impressive and best of all, free. It does as much as bundled versions of Nero and Cyberlink do with far less bloat. I already ditched Sonic and I may even be able to get rid of my Sure Thing labeling program. I got two free products and I like both of them very much. Thanks again.

Your Welcome Dch48. :)
I've been a fan of their Burning Studio since version 6.
IMHO, it has Nero beat by a mile and the price for Ashampoo Burning Studio 2010 Advanced
certainly can't be beat.

Nope, can't be beat with a stick  ;D .  I like that it will be usable when I finally get a new system with Win7. The Sonic software I was using is only for XP and, since it came bundled from HP, will only install on this machine anyway.

 I also like, as I said earlier, DVD Flick. You can take .avi or other video files and convert them to a DVD that will play in any DVD player with menus, chapter breaks, subtitles, and everything a commercial DVD would have. The quality varies with how much video you convert but for files up to 4 hours in length it produces pretty good discs. It is also able to use double layer discs which obviously would extend the amount of data you can convert.

Five myths about Facebook

By David Kirkpatrick
Sunday, September 26, 2010

Movies often have Web sites, but it's not so often that Web sites have movies. Facebook, of course, is not just any Web site; in the 6 1/2 years since founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg started the social networking service in his Harvard dorm room, it has acquired 500 million active users worldwide. It may be the fastest-growing company in history. And now, yes, it is the inspiration for a movie, "The Social Network," opening Oct. 1. Even before Hollywood got involved, however, Facebook was the subject of quite a bit of lore -- not all of it true.

as I mentioned a few times on this forum, I really don't like Facebook at all, so I just don't use it, but still, after reading an article about FB's popularity, I checked on Alexa, and guess who might soon become the most frequented site worldwide?  ;D

You're right. I consider myself in my second childhood.  ;D
