• Is Windows Vista ReadyBoost a useful tool?

    Does the ReadyBoost system that allows you to use flash drives as rapid access virtual RAM on a Vista machine worth the effort of installing? Does it improve performance over conventional virtual RAM (swap file on the hard drive)?

  • How can I prevent CPU overload penalties on my Wordpress blog?

    My blogging site www.sciencetext.com is periodically subject to a suspension by the webhost because something on the site trips the server's CPU. How can I optimize my blog, Wordpress database etc to prevent this from happening without having to pay for an upgrade.

  • Mpeg2 editing?

    We recorded some miniDV footage with a Sony videocam, burned it to DVD+R with a set-top DVD recorder (as the camera wouldn't show up in Vista or XP) and then used DVD data rescue to extract a 200Mb mpeg2 file from the unreadable DVD (which plays perfectly on the DVD player but not on a PC). We want to edit the file but Womble mpeg video wizard... show more

We want to edit the file but Womble mpeg video wizard shows garbage and other programs won't load it...any clues as to how we can get to the footage?
