Thanks for the info. As an Elvis freak, I was disappointed to hear they went under. I believe they have produced most of the Elvis songs that he recorded. I was hoping they would continue until they did all of them. Oh, well, maybe someone else will do it but I doubt it since this would not be beneificial to most karaoke shows.

I use a second hard drive to hold all my music. That way if your main HD crashes you do not lose all your music because of that crash. Right now I use an 80GB HD and I have a backup on a 160gig external.

As long as it is only used for storage you could make it to leaving a HD with 1-5 gigs open on it. If you are using your Windows HD then I would really recomend getting a seperate HD.

It would be a good idea to grab an external cooler for your notebook. (as Dell no longer calls them laptops because of the heat issue and how hot they get now) You can find these external cooling devices at Target, Walmart and they use a USB port to run. All you do is set your notebook on the device which has fance that blow on the underside of the notebook and keep it running much cooler.

I have actually had some problems with Stardisc. Sometimes when the graphics load at the begining it cuts out the music to a low scratchy noise until the title has loaded. MM has never given me any problems except for their quality is low. The worest song I have with Stardisc is Lets go to Vagas.
