    There are burners and blank media available already... they just aren't affordable. It'll take years for that to change.

    Yeah, I guess in a few years these prices will be down quite a bit. I think I paid something like $150 for my first CD Burner. I believe it was a 4x or 8x BTC refurb crapmaster that made a lot of coasters. We've come a long ways.

    I paid $300 for my first CD-ROM, and $600 for my first burner. Those were in like 1991 and 1994 respectively. The burner was a Ricoh external SCSI and was a complete POS. 3 times out of 4 I'd be trying to burn a disc and it would generate a write error, and I'd turn a then $3 blank CD into a coaster. Plus, it was only 1x so it took forever.

    We have come a long way indeed.

    Me too Realgun. I got a Mitsumi 2x from some guy from a local BBS. He came to the theatre where I worked, picked up the money, then a couple days later came by with the drive It was a killer price at the time, came with a controller card and everything. Worked awesome in my Tandy 1000 TX.
