Am new to your forums but from what I have seen so far, its one of the best my thanks to managers and contributors.
So my challenge is simple, for long time I kept my audio/video collection that I collect using a PC in a PC, and DVDs that I buy are next to my small home theater, but now I decided to have them digitized because am afraid that I may loose them due decay (even CD/DVD will be dead some day).
But my challenge grew a bit harder, I got so many DVD ripping and managing software’s and all the sort of copying decoding you name it, all these tools were great for a person with a PC and huge HDD . But not my wife
One day she said to me, why don’t you get a hardware that do all this work for you, of course she wants the easy way to store her DVDs and CDs in portable device. And boom she has Archos 7 now.
Now I feel jealous and I want a toy like that, even though am the one who purchased it for her but I didn’t feel that Archos would be a professional tool for my style.
My question: is there a single “big-boys-toy” that I can use to store my ever growing 1500+ DVD, with features better than Archos 7 especially quality management (something of DVD quality, not MPEG4) and can keep up with more than 700GB. I don’t mind if its portable or big enough to set on but not as expensive as the huge NAS/SAN solutions used by TV stations
