    Hi there,
    Our DVD collection is getting wrecked by small children getting them out, leaving them out, putting them back....scratching them everytime. Is there anything out there where we can load our collection and access them without the need to touch the DVD after the initial load. I've looked at DVD recorders with a HDD, Lifebox from Maplins, external hard drives and still not absolutely sure whether I'm going down the right route? I've got used to loading my CD music onto my MP3 player, now I need a DVD version for the TV! Any help to point out the obvious to me would be much appreciated.

    DVDs are copy-protected which prevents any type of copying. There's no technology-related solution to the problem. Perhaps after your kids wreck a few of their favorite movies, and their parents don't replace them, they'll handle them more carefully.
