for photo/video editing and CD/DVD burning. I use them for different tasks. I have plenty of room and memory for multiple programs to be installed. If one fails or can't do the job I want, I have alternatives from which to choose.
I plan on doing a lot of DV and photo editing. I am just scratching the surface right now. I have Pinnacle Studio and Photoshop Elements on my computer, as well as some others. I have at least 3 separate DVD/CD writers and media players on my computer; they came with the software. (Media PLayer, Pinnacle "instant write" product, and Nero 6). I have no idea if I need all these or if I should use one and ignore the others? Will they conflict? At a loss on this one. Any help much appreciated!
