Re: Multisession dvd burn

If it pulls in a few MB it won't hurt anything unless your PC needs to be running antiX.

Re: New user an MX16

I find that working my way through the Manual step by step and making changes as I go (and sometimes changing them back) works well for my age and mental capacities. YMMV
