Hi--

Two questions, only vaguely related:

1) I'm wanting to hook up three Plextor USB CD-R burners for simultaneous
burning of identical files.  There are two problems I'm having.  We use
Nero 6 as our burning software.  Nero 6 will only let you burn to two
drives simultaneously.  One can purchase an upgrade for $300.00 to allow
for simultaneous burning to up to 7 drives.  We have not the money to spend
on such a thing nor the need to burn more than 3 discs at once.   This bums
me out since I actually really like Nero.

A. Is there a good, inexpensive (like $70.00-$100.00) piece of burning
software out there that will allow us to burn to 3 USB drives at once?

B. I imagine I'll need a USB hub of some sort since I don't have that many
ports on the PC--is any one hub better than any other for this sort of
application?

We're using a PC running Win 2K and a Plextor PlexWriter PX-W4824TU/SW USB
2.0 external drive.

2) We've gotten a small amount of grant money to buy a hot cassette deck.
I'm opting for a Nakamichi Dragon.

A. I'm following Ebay, but anybody on the list have one for sale?

B. Since I imagine that we'll have to have the deck serviced to bring it up
to snuff, can anyone recommend someone with the chops to work on a Nakamchi
Dragon in Vermont, or more broadly New England or the Northeast?

Thanks,

andy
