    Never mind.

    This is really a game with some very strange quirks. Turns out, after just letting the game run for well over an hour while I fruitlessly search for some kind of path off the map,...

    Hi Guys,
    I have been playing Highland Warriors and made it through all the scenarios in campaign 1. Now on campaign 2 scenario 1 I have eliminated the Picts and my next objective is to prevent...

    The proof, as they say, is in the pudding...whatever that means.

    Clearly you can find sellers with 100% ratings selling CD-RWs just as I did. That means nothing until it arrives and you check it...

    Just ran into another bizarre eBay moment. One of the sellers from whom I bought a few CD-RW drives (one of only two who did everything right) listed a few more for sale and had a Best Offer option....

    I guess it wasn't that important to them as they have not gotten back to me.

    By the way, the hits just keep on coming. I won an auction with the opening bid of 99 cents and paid for the item. ...

    If you can find a copy of Interplay's 10 Year Anthology the Star Trek game is on there as well as 9 other games. You can probably pick it up cheaply (used) and it would be on CD - no need to play...

    All of them had good feedback, most at 100%. That is why I left only neutral feedback and not negative feedback...neutral does not break their 100% rating.

    One seller sent me a message and...

    That has always been my opinion as well. Once connected to the internet you really don't know, and cannot fully control, some piece of software accessing the internet without your knowledge or...

    My mom is 97 and I can no longer take her to the doctor. This was fine because my doctor would come to the house (yes, an actual house call doctor!). Unfortunately he passed away from the virus so...
  10. The drives are going to go into older machines,...

    The drives are going to go into older machines, some of which are running Windows 95. Wouldn't DVD writers require at least Windows XP and probably a SATA or USB connector?

    And by the way, is...

    Since I have only gone as far as Windows XP on any machine, I am unfamiliar with W7 or W10. Just for my own knowledge, does a W10 machine have to be connected to the internet? And if it is not...

    I was trying to stock up on some CD-RW drives which are IDE and work under Win95 or at worst, Win98. The units run at one of two speeds for reading - 48x and 52x. These are for older machines still...

    I did finally receive one drive which was packaged correctly and still sealed. Yea!!

    Except for drive #7 everything checked out as a CD-RW and working. When I finally looked closely at drive 7...

    I am coming to that realization and can only hope the drives in open boxes really were opened only to remove the UPC code. Of course, I guess it's possible some boxes may not have been wrapped in...

    Way back in the 386 days I once told a friend there was going to come a time when you would have to be connected to the internet in order to use your PC. Back then when dial-up was the only way to...

    I just looked more closely at drive 7 and see it is not new. It is dusty and is not wrapped in plastic. The seller has already agreed to a return. This is the third seller of these drives who...

    A word of caution for anyone looking to purchase a new CD-Rewriter.

    I just finished purchasing a number of CD-Rewriters off eBay and have run into issues with nearly every order. All the drives I...

    That site is a great read. I was struck by this one sentence:

    "Low speed discs are compatible with all CD-RW recorders and can only be written from 1x to 4x speeds."

    CD Speed and Drive Compatibility

    Recently I purchased a bunch of unlabeled discs which were sold as 1x-4x CD-RWs. Before I opened them, I asked the seller if these were really CD-RWs since the seller had included unused paper...
