If you want trouble-free dvd burning note that some folks have probs with Pinnacle's S8. But Nero 6 can cope with most dv editing software. You won't get dv editing and dvd burning software bundled (unless it's Vegas video - not cheap but trouble-free). I've used VideoWave (useless), S7 (not bad) and Video factory (great). There's a lot to learn and here's a good place to start click here (site's down at moment) and here click here is a load of tools.
BTW it's better to post in helproom as this is the lounge where we like to bicker.
