Well, if/when you *do* try, please clue me in. --I'm too new to
DVD's and tooo che--er, thrifty to buy a ten pack of blanks. I'm
not sure that I have three hours of "favorites"; probably, but no
more. Most of my favorite tunes are on tape--pre-recorded and
hi-fidelity, but the problem is turnning analogue to digital.
