DVD drive recomendations

by Pumpkinhead / November 22, 2005 7:05 AM PST

I do not yet have a DVD drive. I am interested in getting an EXTERNAL DVD drive to copy home movies from my camcorder. It is NOT a digital camcorder, it records on 8MM tape. I guess this is 'analog'?

I want to do a little editing, nothing fancy. Is there a DVD drive out there with software for creating DVD's.

I run XP and have Nero Burning Rom v5.5.9

is there a reason you want it external? if you get a tv capture card and an internal drive, it will work perfectly. at any rate, go to www.tigerdirect.com. and search. they have the cheapest and the best.

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?
