Some of you that are expert in the media subjects seem to be using a large number of different programs. When I first started doing backups I thought that if you got too many programs on one machine they always caused conflicts. At the present time Windows Media Player, Nero, AnyDVD, DVD Decrypter, Fix VTS, Shrink, Imgburn, and RipIt4Me seem to be compatible on my computer. The only thing I found so far I couldn't have at the same time were Nero and Roxio. (I see that some of you can manage those two on the same computer.) Can you put conflicting programs in different partitions and have no problems? Would love to know how many programs some of you are running and your secrets for success.
