In programs that offer you the option to set the storage disk, go to "Menu OR Preferences OR Options" and in each case designate the data to be saved in F: drive. Then those programs will save data in the designated drive (F: - default drive). I had to do this for my capture program (WinTV)
In some instances where you want to save one or more files, you may have to designate F: drive as the default drive, and pick the directory in which you want the files to be saved in.
Thank you for the info. I will try it tomorrow and see how it goes. Hope it works in Vista; there are alot of different problems with this software that I have had to overcome.
