Hi, I have over 40GB of music i need to store someplace so I don't lose it. Does anyone have any ideas of how I can store all these files so I wont lose them? I tried getting a blank dvd to tranfer the files there but my computer won't recognize them, im trying to upload them to the internet but I doubt im gonna have enough time to get all of them uploaded.

-thanks in advance

Uploading that much data on a home connection will take ages lol..

The best thing to do is go out and buy another harddrive. Transfer your music to that harddrive and your good to go. Internal or external harddrives its all up to you. People now adays get external harddrives for storing there valuble data and music..

Ya that would work or you can either hook up both computers to a router on your home network. The network way, is harder to explain.

Or get a DVD burner, if you allready have one you will have to check what formats it supports, do this in its instructions or look it up on the manufacturers website. DVDs are probably a good way im about to do it myself that way the data is safe from hardware failures power surges etc.
