OK... Show of hands... How many tried to rewind the DVD when they first got a player?

Having grown up with records....I kinda got the gist

I threw out probably 200 tapes about 8 years ago because my Betamax bit the dust and I couldn't get another one. Don't really miss them at all... it was a pretty good decluttering exercise. The only VHS tape that I still have is my first kid's Kindergarten graduation... someday I'll get it transferred to digital.

I'm a hold out when it comes to outdated technology. Yes I still use my VHS VCR all the time as well as my turntable ( yes, vinyl does sound better) and my cassette deck.
My current VCR is starting to show its age, I may have to grab a new one before they are all gone.

I was just thinking of that-my wedding is on VHS, and I think we better get these tapes transferred soon! If the shops that do the DVD conversion can't replace their VCRs, we'll be SOL. Kinda sad, in a way.
Just 16 short years ago I saved up from first post-college job to buy a Mega CD Changer (200 Discs!! $500!), and sold it on Craigslist just a few months ago for$30. I was honestly amazed that someone wanted it.

That's a really good idea. I have some stuff I wouldn't want to lose.
