  • to be honest i'd get the verbatims, they are probably the best DL discs ive used, and ive also had bad experiences with the memorex discs in the bast, and i usually burn either 2x or 4x on most backups
  • I'd Recommend AVG for my anti virus scanner, i use it myself and its pretty good http://free.grisoft.com/doc/2/ and for your startup (i'm assuming you're using Windows), check out this guide, it will talk you through about disabling all the cr…
  • first thing you should do, is go to 'My Computer', then right click on the drive, then click on 'Properties', it should tell you the model info about your drive, if you can post the model here, i can help you out a lot more. looking at what you p…

  • if your just editing simple music files try audacity , its 100% free http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/

  • you could probably use something like Avidemux http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/ or virtualdub http://www.virtualdub.org/ the good thing about them both is that they are free
  • try 7-Zip its 100 % free and handles Rars and Zips too http://www.7-zip.org/
  • i get mine from svp.co.uk you can pick up Taiyo Yudens from there, but i think that Verbatims are just as good to be honest as they use the same disc dye and they are a lot easier to get over here Verbatims: http://svp.co.uk/products-list.php…

  • yeah the new XBMC scripts are pretty cool, the comedy central one is my fave and the dailymotion one is pretty sweet too
  • yeah i'd recommend µTorrent too, its very lightweight (the standalone is just 170kB) http://www.utorrent.com/download.php and its ad free, no malware, none of that junk other than that, i use to use BitComet and that was pretty good as well
  • try CDex its free and its great http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/download.html also when you import a cd, you can set an option to grab the track names for you

  • laptops / notebooks tend use 2.5", if the laptop is a few years old you must check if its a PATA or SATA one, (best way is to take it out and take it to a store. and to be honest, stick with a 5400 rpm drive, otherwise your laptop will overhea…
  • Dick, you can use winamp but you have to download the iPod Plugin, and hymm (http://hymn-project.org/)

  • yeah i would recommend videora too im not sure about using the piratebay, torrentspy or mininova for any 'scene' releases at the moment, the riaa and mpaa have been posting a lot of fake torrents on there recently, so you might want to arm yourse…
  • i not too struck on vista at the moement, but i think that i will probably take it up in a few months when i see a service pack. i might consider it when the direct x 10 cards come out as i develop games, but to be honest it isnt that stable with…
  • StreamboxVCR if you can find it (you might have to find it on some p2p though)

  • uTorrent is good 'cause its lightweight, but i also like bit comet which is a very good as it has links to all the other popular torrent sites like mininova and pirate bay etc..
