Hi Orac
I'm running Windows ME on a comp with a ton of RAM and 30 G harddrive, 1.3ghz processor
It's being a bit of a pig - could be I don't know too much, BUT it won't play .cda files (even tho I've selected all file formats, when I start the app (since installing Media Player updates the other day) it keeps popping up the Dial Up Xtra box, I've never been able to download and watch anything remotely like the movie trailers you see on PC World free cds,it will only encode ripped cds at 64 kbs and generally is just giving me the squirts!
There's gotta be a simpler,not so bossy app!
Cheers
Lynne
