Have installed Linux Mint 13 Mate (64bit), no other OS.
I have a motto...I don't go back
DazednConfused3826 wrote:Thanks, will try above suggestions. As for which exact programs, CD's, well here's a couple, yes, some are dated however, I'm very familiar and comfortable with them. Hey, if there's an equal available via open source which works equally in all aspects, I'll definitely give it a try.
I do like Linux much better. I have always fought with Windows for some reason or another. And the rebel in me hates the "control" Windows has over its users.
Thanks again, DnC...
Roxio Easy Media Creator 10 Deluxe Suite (this bugger, I love, though it pulls lots of working memory, in Windows. I know it's limits and how to work with it. Again, I'll try an open source equal if it's out there.)

(this helps recognize the External Media Drives when they are inserted into the slide in bay. I have several, well many, external hard drives. I keep nothing what so ever on this work computer except during work. Habit from Windows use. Anything that I'm working on, saving, want to keep gets put on separate external hard drives. So if my work horse gets infected, crashes, etc., all I loose is OS and any software installs. Time consuming to redo, but better than loosing every single thing. Hard drives NEED to be recognized upon connection either by media bay slot for those types or by USB link for others. I do tons of home movies for family making "Home made" DVD's. So, I need ALL my external drives to be recognized as well as any new ones.

With Petra, when I attached a brand new drive it showed in the "C" drive with no partitions or anything however it did not automatically open a new window, as with used drives with data in them. Oh, I always do a complete HD scrub with Dban 2.2.8 before installing any new/replacement OS. I know, time consuming, but hey, I've got the time.

However, the brand new drives, with nothing, are not showing up at all except in "C" drive. I'd like to get to use the new drives (media slot) so that when I put files on them and insert into the media drive slot or USB, they automatically pop up a window showing all files. I see no formatting option or partitioning option in Mint 13 as I did in Mint 16.
Again, thanks for all the help...DnC
