To all future Giga 3 users : I'm giving up the ghost of trying to have it all on one computer. I gave it my best shot over the past 6 weeks, everyday, but Giga 3 and my ATI 8500DV DVD player and Earthlink and Norton Anti-virus on the same PC is hell-on-earth'. A surprise catastrophie every 24 to 36 hours; Yet always a creative catastrophie. This morning was the last straw when my monitor went black on the left side just enough to cover the Windows' Start button. This makes it a tad' troubling to do much. Before that, all 8 ports of Giga 3 spit themselves out, with no error messages. Before that my monitor wouldn't turn on. Before that Giga wouldn't see my external sample drive, and the fun goes on and on like that. Just be glad that Giga 3 even works on a bare-bones system, because it's too aggravating to lose your musical spirit over all the gadgetry. Maybe a Mac' with Giga 3...hmmm..
