    Is there a Legal way to digitize Physical media?

    In other words, suppose I want to take all 14 seasons of the original Dallas series and transfer them to Hard drives. That way , I can avoid DVD rot. I have all 14 seasons on DVD but I also have been purchasing them via I tunes. I know it may sound silly. But the way things are who knows...

    Could Physical Media Extend To USB

    I have been thinking of the concept of HD films been packaged on a USB flash drive. 64 GB drives and bigger are widely available now so there does not seem to be an obstacle in a data storage capacity regard. Also, I am curious to know if it would save costs over discs. Don't know how much...

    Replacement for Windows Media Player (Win 7)

    I might have asked before, but I'm going to shoot at it again. I'm looking for something (has to be free) that's comparable to Windows Media Player. I'm not interested in doing videos; I rarely use my computer for that. I need it for music as I have probably close to 40,000 songs on here. I want...

    The Future of Barnes & Noble--and what it may mean for media purchasing

    The NYT recently had an opinion piece on the future of B&N. It calls the retailer's death "plausible." It includes a fair amount of facts...and more than a sidewards glance toward Amazon along with US antitrust policies. It would be a very bad thing if B&N goes down... When's that next...

    Windows Media Player won't open

    It's been happening on and off for ages, but it's decided to go crazy tonight. I rebooted my computer, opened up Media Player, and it won't even show me half of my music. I close it down and it won't reopen. I rebooted and it does the same thing again. No matter how many times I click the icon...

    Barefoot Gen 1 & 2 (1983/1986) coming from Diskotek Media

    I don't see much love around here for anime and it's a pity because there are many great films to discover. One of them is Barefoot Gen, which is coming along with its sequel on bluray. I loved the first film more than the more "popular" Grave of the Fireflies. I definitely wouldn't suggest...
