perrycas wrote:deeveedee sounds fine could you refer me to a download site that works, I have tried several but cant seem to open the package once i get it, says there is an error while loading the archive. Does this mean it has a problem or does it mean i need to know how to do something tricky?

Now i did look at some instructions to operate it but there seems to be a problem in that while i have a disk in the player and it is registering as being, devede is not seeing it.Is there something I need to tweak?
perrycas wrote:ok, perhaps I expressed myself poorly. When i looked at the online directions the screen shot shows the 'unsaved structure' has a title and file/s of the target to be copied. I have nothing. How do i get them into this page, or in other words how do I open disk player?
perrycas wrote:Hi thanks very much for this, I just did a dry run and think i understand how it works now. I cant understand why the site I looked at claimed this didnt need any real instruction. When you're used to programs written for MS one gets used to things just working (or not). Just out of curiosity however you mentioned in an earlier post that Roxio 'sucked.' Generally speaking It did all, or most of what devede does a lot simpler and quicker. The only thing i can think of that is a drawback is that it doesn't burn slow enough. What other advantages does it have?
But this is in no way a complaint or criticism of your taking the time to explain the procedure to me, thank you very much, I do appreciate your patience.
perrycas wrote:Thanks for this, interesting. Yes I quite agree with you re nero. Roxio, or at least the roxio i have has actually been OK for me, basic little program that it is. Possibly my problems have been less with Roxio, which 'generally' works quite efficiently, but perhaps more with dvd43 which i have been using as a de-encypt device. Generally this works well too, but is not infallible, there seem to be a very wide range of encryption programs and poor little dvd 43 isn't quite up to all of them. And yes the 'linux way' is considerably different, and I am really toying with it at the moment using a dual boot with XP. I figure once xp goes the way 98 went I will no longer play with MS. So I realise that its a matter of perseverance.
I do have another project that i could do with some advice on - recording from input radio, record, tape. Any suggestions for a program?
Thanks for your input.
