Dusty, when you take a screen shot of a video, where do you insert it?  That is, when you paste it, what program do you use.   Serious question.   Dan showed me super simple way to use PowerDVD--just copy, and it ends up in your mypictures folder!    But not sure how to paste using other programs.    And you deserve another exalt for making me laugh again.

Um, Windows Photo Editor I think, or I think there is maybe a photo programme on Nero that you can use as well. To be honest I don't do it very often, the last time I can remember doing it is when we re-did Hanlon's Santa Barbra DVD, and that was just to annoy him.  :)

Dusty, "Converting wav to mp3 - dbpoweramp" has only 30 days' trials.  I do agree dbpoweramp can do almost everything in audio world except mp3 converting if you don't want to pay for it.

Holy blue, Pottel.   I deleted that remark 20 seconds after I posted it!  You must have been in that 20 second window!
Were you really mad????????   I am chastised, probably justifiably so.   :'(        I still think it was funny, though.   ;)
I'm creating md5s for all the files you asked about.  Everything clears just fine.   So I did something wrong in loading the flac files into Nero.

Hi Guys. Is mp3 (Lame) the same as just mp3?
My free version of "dbpoweramp" still converts to and from:-Flac;m4a;mp3(Lame);shorten;wave & Windows Media AudioV9.1 They play ok in Widows media - foobar 2000 - winamp - and Nero.

Uuuhhh I didn't understand much about all the things you all were talking about, except the words "Nero". That is the program for my CD/DVD burner also and I only burn and don't know what I can do more with it. ........Ooohhh there was also another word I understood ........OOOhhhhh Pottel!!!!!  :o  :-[  ;D
