Need to replace old CD/DVD player

by rdsymmes / December 9, 2014 3:25 AM PST

I am fairly tech-savvy for a 60-something broad, but I also like to use things up and wear them out. That said, my old Sony 5-disk CD/DVD player is having issues, so I am thinking about replacing it before it goes completely belly up on me. I got a cheapo blu-ray player recently for the "kids" so would prefer not to replace that (I'm seeing a lot of blu-ray players that also do CD and DVD). I really like my old Sony player because it accommodates up to 5 disks, and when we're entertaining, it's nice to slip in a bunch of disks and walk away. Anybody have any suggestions for what we should do? And by the way, the house is wired for sound in each room, so that's another reason why I like the multi-disk player. Really don't want to pitch my old CDs and DVDs just because of new technology, you know?

Personally I got 2 of those thing, one is a Magnavox and the other is an Insignia and it actually plays mp3. Can you imagine 5 dvd of long would that play. That's my point..convert your music to mp3 then you don't need a 5 disc player.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
