I haven't been on the forum too much the past week or so while I have been transitioning to a new computer. The new computer is a Gateway with quad-core 2.5 ghz processor, 4 gb RAM, 640 gb HD, running Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. It came with a beautiful 24" HD flat screen monitor. The old computer runs Windows XP Pro.

This has been and continuing to be a major project for me. There is a lot of software to be installed and a lot of data to be moved over. Some software has to be replaced due to incompability with Vista. My photo database has been successfully moved and installed.

I'll check in as I get time. I think it will be a couple weeks before this project is anywhere near completion.

You guys are both talking PCs. What were you thinking???? You could have bought a Mac and with the money you save on Virus software you could have taken your wives out on the town and spent the night in a great hotel. When will you ever learn!!

What is AVI HD? I play AVI all the time. The quality is A1, but I dont think they are HD. You have to have an HD DVD for real HD. So to play AVI I use VLC player or ffmpeg. You can convert avi to DVD with Visual Hub.

Must be the season for new computers, had to replace my computer too, old over heated and the PCU died. Replaced the dead computer with a Gateway LX6800, Quad 4 2.8 Ghz, with 8 Gig of memory.Now if I can just get this one setup with everything that was on the old one I'll be set, if I don't burn this one up.

a similar setup on a mac would easily have cost me at LEAST $500 more than i paid! Also, I don't run antivirus software. I haven't run anything except windows firewall in years, and knock on wood I've had no problems!!

Wow thats too bad. Its a really good utility for file conversion. There are many others, probably the best being ffmpeg X. Its a player and converter from almost any format to almost any other format.
