Business ideas with a CD/DVD burner
Seeing as I now have a CD/DVD-burner I'd like to make some use out of it. As such, I'm offering my services out for a small and reasonable fee.

What I'm thinking of doing is taking VHS tapes sent to me and turning them into a DVD or CD, whichever is prefered. Or even vice versa between the formats. What do you think? Would you or someone you know be interested and if so how much would you be willing to pay?

Another option I'm considering is download requests. People would request (legit) files, I would download them, burn them to a CD (or DVD), and then mail that to them.

Current Mood: blah blah
Current Music: none

I'd probably pay up to $20 for the service, incl shipping.

If my local friends can't make me a DVD of Forbidden Zone, I just may have to send it to you.

*nods* Just so you know, in order to turn a VHS into a DVD using a computer DVD burner they will need a TV tuner card as well (of which I have).

Herm... interesting idea. If I ever need a linux distro burnt to a DVD I'll take you up on the offer, hopefully by then DVD-Rs won't be very expensive.

A 10-pack of DVD-Rs w/jewel cases at wal-mart is only $20. Even at $2 a pop that's cheaper than a 50-pack of CD-Rs w/out jewel cases for $16 in comparison of storage space.

4.7GB / .7GB = 6.7 times
$16 / 50 = $0.32
$0.32 * 6.7 = $2.144
