    Meh, VLC ignores the region junk on the DVD anyhow, so it's better than Windows Media was at playing DVD's (a fair few of my DVD's are still from South Africa which is a different DVD region to NZ)

    @CP, just get a Behringer X32, I'm sure you can hook the 8 track up to it somehow, and then record on that, and then you can take the wav files, break them into 640k chunks (so they can fit on the floppy disks) and slowly copy it to the DOS 1 machine.....which should have the capacity for about 15 seconds of music (maybe just 7 seconds).

    I've never even heard of it. I might check it out.

    At least VLC media player is free.

    I guess that's what bugs me...it seems like a basic enough feature that it shouldn't cost extra. It doesn't seem like DVDs are getting phased out to the same degree that CDs are, for example.
