DVD burners are great.  I haven't used a stand alone like you are using but have one on the computer I built.  I also have a very cool program where I can transfer anything onto my computer and go from there.  Cool

watching the lions may be interesting at the end of the season, there are more upsets at the end of the season plus the lions are playing for a top draft pic. perhaps a pot of coffee and a lions game can make for a relaxful sunday to figure out and learn the burner......old friend christmas did come early plus didnt you also get some recent snow??

Mayhaps we need to make a modest contribution to Santa to make sure oldfriend gets a dvd burner for Christmas.  I would love to see anything oldfriend has of the Romantics.  I have a VHS tape of the Romantics playing "Talkin in Your Sleep" and "Rock You Up" on Band Stand.  Get this!!  The *&#@!!* vcr I recorded it on had a switch to disable the audio!!!!!!  Yep, I don't have the audio.  damn!!  The only thing I remember was Wally telling the audience how many days the Romantics toured each year.  As I remember it was in excess of 372 days a year.  Man it was great being a Romantics fan in the 1980's.

I have the burner. I intend to take some time this week and figure out how to use it. The Romantics will absolutely be the first project that I tackle.

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! This cheap piece of crap "Lite On" DVD burner took a dump!! It freezes up at random times and then the only way to get it going again is to unplug it and plug it back in which ruins the DVD you are trying to record. I wasted 3 DVDs this weekend trying to make copies of some stuff. I'm sending it back this week but now I am back to square one and have to buy a new one. No more cheap off brands. The next one will be a Sony or another name brand.

hey oldfriend.
I got a cheap DVD recorder at Walmart--it did the same thing-- and what really made me mad was that they wouldn't exchange it (even though 2 of the same DVD burners were exchanged and NEITHER worked.)  It was the worst $100 I ever spent (and unfortunately, can't recoup....)

We forked out a little extra around the holidays and our new DVD burner seems to work really well. Smiley

I've got Imovie and Idvd-- Maybe you and I should get together sometime to see if we can get something to work!

A little piece of advice.  Buy a Plextor or ASUS.  They are by far the best and most reliable burners IMO.  I have 3 burners and all work great.  You also want some good burning software as well (Nero for example).  Cool

While I do have a dvd burner on my new computer(don't know how to use it), the dvd burner that died was a stand alone unit that I just patched in to my line of vcrs and another dvd player. On a better note, before it died, I did manage to make a dvd of the Romantics "Rockin On The Riverfront" show. It came out great. At least I have a master copy of that now, and when I get a new unit, I can make copies for the people here right from that master copy. I was trying to put together the Romantics compilation that I want to make when the stupid burner froze up and died. When I get the new one, that will be my first project.

I have thought about getting a stand alone unit as well as transfering stuff from VHS is much easier with one of those units but I haven't looked into them much.  I have transferred a few VHS tapes to my computer and burned them to DVD but the process is much longer but does work great when completed.   Cool

no doubt...when it comes to reliable recording or burner a good brand is needed. the inexpensive vhs recorders then the cd to dvd just dont seem to last long or have problems from the start. that just may go for anything. good luck old friend.
