i know i am kind of confusing sometimes so if you dont understand my question just say so. hehehehe. thanks.
oops one more bone head question. have you ever miss filed a disc and how difficult would it be to find the one you miss filed? hehehehe. i guess you would have to run through every disc.
Each unit has to be plugged into the wall to operate. I use two large wall strips to plug all ten into. I leave the wall strips turned on, so they can be used manually at any time. There is a sliding door in the front which keeps the dust out. This door also wakes the unit up when you open it & lights up the unit.
If your PC is on & the USB lines are connected, then you are able to use the movie collector software which is interconnected to the units. You now can eject discs within the software. I keep a backup of all software on another hard drive. I keep new movies on my desk until I have 4 or 5 to store, then make a backup of CDLIB & movie collector software at the same time.
I usually only take one movie out at a time. I just leave the door open on that unit until I return the disc. You can't blow it that way because its the only unit with the door open.
