Thanks for the link to Pinnacle Systems.
Here is the information of my computer system that I just built with the help of a friend. The system currently has 1 gig of RAM and I intend to update it to 2 gigs in the near future.

I am currently using a trial version of Adobe Premier Pro. It is definitely a lot harder to use than Movie Maker or Studio 8/9, but it is rich with features and options. It will take some time to learn all the tricks but I think it is a program you can grow with. It seems to work well with the Plextor 708A DVD Writer. I am also using the Verbatim brand of media which was recommended by Plextor and "no coasters" so far. I tried some NewEgg DVD-R media "that I received as a gift during the computer build" with Adobe Premier Pro and all I got was coasters.
Any tricks or suggestions about Adobe Premier Pro would be appreciated. You can send them via e-mail if you prefer not to discuss on this forum.
