I have no idea what I'm doing. I had a new computer build for me last fall, and I decided to get a DVD burner. Trouble is, I have no idea how to use it. I've downloaded some movies off the internet but when I did some research about burning them, I can't seem to get a really clear picture of what I should be doing. Honestly, I've probably put about 10 hours of research into this and have had several failed attempts at doing ANYTHING. I figured it's time to ask some questions. Here are my system components: SONY DVD RW DRU-530A Dual Format Drive ~ 300GB Memory 2.05 GHz AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Windows XP I have downloaded: DVD Decoder DVD Shrink IFOEdit AviCodec Ashampoo Movie Shrink & Burn 2 TMPGEnc I have: Nero Express 5.5 PowerDVD Ulead Video Studios Now I understand (obviously) that I don't need all of these, they have just accumulated after trying several different pieces of advice. Can someone please help me understand where to go from here? PS. I am not totally computer illiterate. This is just going way over my head for some reason. Thank-you.
