Please Login to Remove!

I just got an 8830 but have no clue which desktop software to download.

Many here recommend 4.2 SP2 because a lot of people have problems with 4.3.

When you say 'it does nothing' what do you mean? What are you doing and what do you see happening?

It's been so long since in installed Desktop Manager, I don't recall if there were pauses. You apparently aren't seeing an error. How long have you waited?

By the way, get the SP2 version of 4.2.

I DL'd it recently, Mine sat for quite a while, then finally finished it. Seemed to be some issue with the roxio stuff I was thinking.... I'm not a fan of them at all, so I would expect Roxio to be crap...
