Thank you for the explanation.
I have V2D Version 111B25F.
The Sreen shot shows which Roxio Programs are installed on the computer. Roxio Creator 8.0 came with the computer when I bought it. 8.2 came with a Mad Dog external DVD writer with lightscribe capability which I added afterward.
So far everything seems compatible. Do you have any suggestions? I personally follow the " if it ain't broke, don't fit" philosophy[especially with computers].
Following the forum is an education in itself. Thanks for all your help.
