7/6     What CD/DVD burning software do you use?
        \_ sheesh, this is the 10th time this has been posted this year.
           STFArchive
          \_ scrolled through last 2 days of archive. Is there a text search
             interface I can use via CVS?
           \_ I hate searching, someone please just repost the whole
              thing
              \_ Translation: "I'm lazy and I want someone else to do my
                 research for me."
           \_ the archive doesn't keep ppl from posting the same stuff about
              Michael Moore over and over again
        \_ Nero 6 on Win2k/XP, Toast 6 on MacOS X
           \_ How well does Toast 6 do the whole DVD rip-and-burn?
                \_ I guess its okay, but I prefer to use a PC for ripping.
                   DVDDecrypter + DVDShrink + Nero 6 produce much better
                   results (playable on hacked XBox!) than Toast 6.

        \_ Related question, what software do I need to burn a copy
           of a DVD, but change the region code?
                \_ I use DVDDecrypter to rip the DVD, strip the copy
                   protection and the region code and then I burn the
                   result. Most of the time it works fine. On some
                   R2 PAL dvd's I need to reauthor the dvd as R1 in
                   order to get the colors to show up properly.
                   \_ What software do you use to burn a DVD movie into
                      2 DVDs loselessly? Free software?
                        \_ I've never done this because it is a pita
                           to get working properly. Some players crap
                           out if they get to the end of d1 and can't
                           find the next chapter. In order to fix that
                           you need to futz with the ifo files and stuff
                           which is just too painful. DVDShrink is good
                           enough for the likes of me.
                   \_ If converting from PAL to NTSC, you probably will need
                      to completely re-encode the DVD.  Most NTSC DVD players
                      can't handle PAL discs (and you may also need a TV that
                      supports PAL).  Going in the other direction doesn't
                      have this problem, because most PAL DVD players and TVs
                      are multi-standard.

10/15   I am looking for an mp3 player for my brother as a gift.  What
        features should I look for in a low-end (<$100) player?  I haven't
        yet decided whether to get the small memory type or the larger
        ones that fits a CD yet.  Any brands I should get/avoid?  TIA.

11/2    Thinking about getting a CD writer. Is it necessary to get a read
        only CD player and a writer, or can I just use one CD writer w/
        a lot of HD space?
        \_ You can get away with one CD player. However, if you ever wanna
           make CD-to-CD copies, having a CD-ROM and a CD-R makes it a lot
           simplier. of course, you can still do it with just a CD-R, but

I need it mostly for making mix-CD's, data backup, and making copies of rarer CD's that I have (Uneasy Listening and Brainfreeze). if you copy my post 70 years from now, I can still sue you. if the RIAA gets their way, and it becomes a felony to put copyrighted material on the web, the CSUA would then be guilty of a felony if they posted the motd on the web.

I want to make sure my existing Toshiba DVD player (2+ yrs old) can read the discs burned by the drive. Consulting the web site and manual didn't help--it simply stated the player plays DVD discs. I just buy a DVD-R format buner or shell out more money to buy ... per DVD-R and burning coasters using the cheap stuff isn't ... I would avoid DVD+R's since they don't play properly ... Is it necessary to get a read only CD player and a writer, or can I just use one CD writer w/ a lot of HD space?
