I know absolutely nothing about DAT, but I do burn a lot of data to CD. My 2 little gems of wisdom are programs for burning everyday stuff. Hopefully they're useful.   I own an older HP CD-Writer Plus CD-RW that must be the b****iest =   drive on the face of the earth. It eats only Kodak CD-R discs, preferably =   of the silver+gold variety. It will, on the 2nd Tuesday of any week containing a blue moon, burn a BASF/EMTEC RW disc....IF I hum Der Fledermaus while doing the tango backwards around my desk, juggling tinsel. Next RW will NOT be an HP (but next printer will). FWIW, the machine this drive has lived in for the last 9 months is a PIII 800mhz = base running Win2k SP2 (it is SO nice not to crash anymore!).   After a lot of trial and cursing other programs (most notably = Easy CD Creator...a buggy, clumsy thing), I've found that Nero (www.ahead.de) = is the easiest and most stable "everyday" burning software. It's intuitive, relatively flexible, and very human-friendly. Seems to be happy with most =   drive breeds/models.   I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Nero will convert = MP3s on the fly to burn an audio CD. It's relatively good at making backup copies of copyright protected CDs, but there are some types it stumbles over. Forget it if the CD you're trying to back up is damaged.   For really finicky burning or copying, there's CDR-Win (www.goldenhawk.com). It's not friendly. If you get a drive on the "allowed hardware" list, you'll likely still need a geek to throw a = special set of drivers in for you. This program doesn't hold hands, and it = doesn't have cute cartoons like Nero. It does, however, plow right through obstacles without looking back. Useful tidbit...if you've ever downloaded =   a .bin file, this program knows what to do with it.   A few months ago, I was asked if I could salvage anything from an =   out of print CD that had gotten badly scratched and pitted. Nero couldn't =   touch it, but CDR-Win whizzed right through picking out the remaining intact tracks. Before heading for Denmark with my laptop in June, I used the program to make backup copies of the necessary software CDs (Windows, Office, Frontpage, etc) to take with me. Was nice to leave the originals safe on my desk, and still be able to fix the laptop if it went down = overseas.   Have fun! Ad ;->

DAT is Digital Audio Tape. It was the first user-recordable digital tape technology, and was in cassette format. It was meant to be consumer, or pro-sumer, but ended up pretty much pro.   There is/was R-DAT and S-DAT. R means Revolving heads, like a VCR. S means Stationary heads, like ordinary audio cassette recorders.   I theenk I have this right.   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh

It's really more discriptive > of what actually takes place.   Since sound is usually described as analog in form, ALL digital technologies by definition must "transfer" analog to digital ("digitize" is the term used). Interestingly, there are some who theorize that the brain also digitizes what comes in the ears. We're just a bunch of 1s and Os, eh?   Stan Yoder Pittsburgh

I don't mean to "steal your thunder".   What is the Ultimate Speed, in your opinion, folks, of the speed for a Theatre Pipe Organ Tibia trem?   Also the Ultimate Speed for the fast Tibia trem and the Main voice trem on an EORG if you only have these two electronic trems?   IAN.
