Dvd-r/w For My Trs-80 Model 100

Recommended Posts

I really need a DVD-RW drive to backup the critical files on my TRS-80 model 100 computer. Anyone know where I plug it in at? You would not believe how tough it was to install that color LCD. This would be the perfect platform to play and record DVD movies.

Check out the cool Duke-Nukem mouse pad - the only useful piece of hardware in this picture. I do own this computer for historical value. And the nifty image on the screen proves that I own it, right? I should replace the flying toasters with flying TCH logos. What fun!

I've never heard of a TRS-80 model 100 computer. That is Nuts!

 

I am also surprized that your old mac still runs! Amazing :D

Ok, this is for real now. No tampering with images and such. I promise that everything eminating from a CRT or LCD is produced by that given CRT or LCD respectively.

 

Here is my humble workstation. Two BIG monitors are nice for video editing. All I need now is a burner to clear up space on my limited hard drives and to distribute videos to people in DVD format. And the money I save by winning the burner will go towards a bigger desk. The giant 21" and 19" monitors have already cracked the wood on my desk.

Lets take a tour of all things LCD and CRT. First we have a Samsung PDA phone. The image here is real. I saw another pda phone in another post. That one was modified in Photoshop. This is the real thing complete with the required web page loaded in the Palm Blazer browser.

Next we scroll over to the camcorder. If you tweak with it right through software, you can use the screen as an additional monitor. Resolution isn't that great though.

And finally we have the TV showing the contents of the camcorder. Image quality is starting to fall apart at the end of that long chain of imaging devices.

Just in case you couldn't make out what was on the other screen, here is a close-up. I should get points for the trouble I went through to etch all those rocks... in Photoshop of course.

(not included: My laptop is at work, so I couldn't get a picture of it. And the LCD on my digital camera is tough to get a picture of for obvious reasons)

Cool! I did not know you could add color to the 100

I remember our newsmen using this.

The first practical portable computer.

I still have my Apple II, but haven't turned on in years. :blink:

Um, the TRS-80 doesn't do color. It just does a half dozen lines of b&w text. The TRS-80 and the Mac weren't real screen images. I used Photoshop.

 

Is anyone getting the joke about the rocks? TCH Rocks :D Don't think too hard about it...
