Have you thought about what your going to do with your parents hd?
Managed to muster the confidence to talk to them about it...Mum reckons I 'rush' things too much, then told me I should never take my box with me anywhere (she's always thought LAN parties are stupid =P).
Anyways, we went to the shop and they said they'd get a technician to look at it and if it's broken, we'll get a replacement. Which is good...though I had another video I was editing - and actually getting paid for on...But what I had on there was a quick mash-up they needed - I was planning to redo it from scratch for the DVD version anyway, so I'm not too fussed (just hope someone still has the original tapes so I can recapture - otherwise I *am* in trouble >_>).
I guess I may have to just suck it up...Kinda sucks...I lost a lot of work on there...I wanted to upload really high quality versions of the videos onto Stage6.com and all too. All the raw footage too...though I still have 25 tapes of most of it still...all that anime too - I'll have to waste bandwidth redownloading it again. Not even sure about some of the stuff I was keeping temporarily there...='(
Anyways, enough rambling. Thanks for your assistance everyone! Shame it can't be helped...Was my fault I guess (though why two of the exact same connectors have swapped the voltages around beats me...).
Anyways, once again, thanks,
