What burning or editing software do you have?

Nero 6 ultra has that capability. May I ask why you want to convert vcd to dvd. I want to tell you that you won't gain all that much as far as quality goes. However, I have been experimenting (converting vcr tapes to dvd discs) with .dat files on dvd disc lately. It seems to work pretty well if you start out with good quality at the start.

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?
