Need AVCHD to DVD conversion software recommendation

by redoty / August 22, 2011 10:59 AM PDT

I've searched the internet (and this forum) and can't find a clear answer. I've got a Canon HG20 and want to convert the AVCHD format to DVD both for my viewing pleasure but also to send to friends who don't have Bluray players. The Canon software is so user-unfriendly that it's a joke and I've tried a couple of others (don't remember the names) but no success. I did look at PoweerDirector but decided to stay away because of all the bad reviews. Is there a software that will do the conversion without a lot of hassle? Also, what are the major issues with this conversion? I've got a dual processor 32-bit PC.

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?
