best software for turning handycam into dvd?

by frankzxcv / September 15, 2004 3:38 PM PDT


I am about to buy a DVD burner (win 2000 system) and it seems the only real difference is in the software bundles that come with different drives. I see plextor comes with roxio, some sony's come with nero-- any experience to share in software that turns your video into dvd? thanks - fj

I don't put much stock in the software which comes with

the drive. It may be a lite version, or an iffy application. I buy the software elsewhere. I have used Roxio for years, and have been pleased with its operation. It is easy and intuitive to use. I tried Nero and didn't like it. I burned one disk this summer, and then could not see the files. I found later that they were there, but you needed Nero to see them. The latest reviews I've seen give the nod to Roxio for the same reasons.

The BEST software is far too expensive for the average computer user.

Ulead has several programs for video to DVD.
I use VideoStudio 7 (I think it is now VideoStudio 8).
Go to and check out the programs they offer.
They have free trial versions you can download.
Some of the packages have free tutorials you can download.

That's like to be Adobe Premiere, some Apple system or Avid system. Set aside about 10 to 50 K for these.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
