I want to start to edit my 8mm video. Dell reccomended pinnacle products but online evaluations have been unfavoralble. It sounds like a lot of people like Canopus ADVC100 or a happague card. What are your experiences

I used the Dazzle products and like that for the USB 2.0 devices you don't open the machine, but for 50 bucks the Hauppauge or ATI TV and capture cards are too cheap to ignore and do a good capture.

To place the video on DVD I use the software bundled with the DVD recorder.

Just say Pinnacle is not enough; I have a couple pinnacle program when I first do video stuffs a year or so ago. Needless to say..it was useless. What ever you use, I think USB2 is a must. I am personally uses Adaptec "dvd media center" USB2. It came with Sonic MyDVD software. If I were starting from scratch now, I would problaly get a Plextor unit with Divx encoding.

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?
