DV to hard drive-the avi files play back jittery and jumpy

by rickt49 / October 29, 2004 8:14 AM PDT

When I copy my DV files off my camcorder to the hard drive, when I play then back they are not natural. They are jumpy and jittery. This seems to defeat the whole purpose of doing digital video if I can only watch them off the camcorder.
Is there a particarly good piece of software that I can try first that would fix that. I've tried lots, but with no success, it seems. I tried Window moviemaker, but it seems that I can't move that type of file is not compatible with DVD, my ultimate purpose.

My p3-600MHz laptop seems fine, but I don't allow spyware on the machine and keep the "load" simple. After booting Windows 2000 Pro, it runs just a few programs. Free AVG 6 antivirus and not much else. The drivers are also current. It has only 256MB of RAM.

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?
