I plan on doing a lot of DV and photo editing. I am just scratching the surface right now. I have Pinnacle Studio and Photoshop Elements on my computer, as well as some others. I have at least 3 separate DVD/CD writers and media players on my computer; they came with the software. (Media PLayer, Pinnacle "instant write" product, and Nero 6). I have no idea if I need all these or if I should use one and ignore the others? Will they conflict? At a loss on this one. Any help much appreciated! :thumbsup:

You should not have any conflict, though media players tend to wage war with one another on your computer.
While having many applications to manipulate photos or burn CDs will not cause problems, I always think it best to try each of them out to see which you like best, and use it CONSISTENTLY. Whether you keep the others on your computer or not (just IN CASE) is up to you, but switching between applications doing the same think can be confusing, lead to user errors, and result in compatibility issues.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
