seems like Sunday morning

And it is.

I got the new hard drive in its rightful place as master drive. But in the process I managed to kill a slave drive. I think it's a minor error, and I will likely fix it the next time I have the computer off. There is little on that drive that I usually have any need for, so not a big deal.

More irritating is that when I tried to play Law & Order, the computer was not able to read the new CD-ROM drive, which had the required data disk in it. That drive has been working fine, has copied CDs, is playing music right now, so it was probably a minor thing too. Still, minor things add up, in me, to a feeling that I can't quite get it right. But I will, I will. IT is a matter of walking away from it and coming back fresh later.

When I get all things working as well as I am able I might start looking into processors...no...not yet...

View movies on computer?
So does that mean you can view movies when you have a DVD drive? And if so, how do you do it? Inquiring minds want to know....

Re: View movies on computer?
Now that's old news. I have had a DVD drive for some time now, and it works fine. Nothing to it, just throw the DVD in there and up it comes. Use the mouse to choose what to view. Only, I quickly figured out it is more comfortable watching a movie on the Big Screen, the television. So I got a DVD player for that too.

Anyway, of course it doubles as a CD ROM drive, so I can copy CDs and so on using the DVD drive.

speaking of movies, though. I am finally giving serious thought to buying video editing software, at last. Trouble is, my camcorder is not digital, so I need that "firewire" and I know not what else, just yet, and I am not certain my processor is up to the task. But I'm thinking about it.

Yeah, sure, you techno-geek you. I put a DVD in my DVD drive and no way could I figure out how to run it. Come on you must do something.
