Sorry Nolan, I'm not explaining this very well. Now I have got a Toast icon on my desktop. When I double click the icon I get nothing. It just won't open up to the Toast assistant. I thought I had it, but I'm back to square one again.
I have been using Roxio for my VHS tapes and didn't find that nearly as challenging as this. I can't even get to converting to do what you have told me to do.
