I put my tape in, that was running perfectly days before, and now it states that the 'video heads' need cleaning and has a snowy image...go figure. Time to ditch the tape and invest in a DVD Recorder. I've had it with this inferior format. Can't have my important tapes behind damaged somehow, and so much as to be unrecoverable.... Question though. What would a decent recorder, that does DVD RW and DVD R, run me? Can they be found under the $399 price range, at least for the copmuter? I have about $60's save up now in the old buisness account, $100 total by next month... Thanks... And if there are none under that price range...anyone know someone loking for a web host they can point in my direction?
