    Hi all, this is my first post on this forum - had it recommended to me by a friend.
    A few years back i saw advertised a cd/dvd changer tower for home use - not one of these network jobbies that have 6 drives and 300cds, more like 1 or 2 drives, 100cd/dvd and ability to connect to 1 computer. Does anyone know a retailer of such devices, if so where can i find them/information on them?

    Cheers

    I think I know what you are talking about, but I am not quite sure... I was about to purchase a tower that held 100 CDs... it had a USB interface and connected to the computer and indexed every CD in a database on your PC. Is this kind of what you are talking about? This product was like $200. I think it was about 2 years ago though.

    I dont believe u have to have a business member, my aunts works there. You just need to go and sign up. It used to be that way tho, but not anymore.
