Does anyone know how to use a VCR to back up and restore files?
I think I saw somewhere that this could be done. My Mac operating system will not support anythng but a floppy disk drive, which I do not have. I want to back up my files before updating the OS so that I can safely update it to a level that will support a CD-R drive.

Hi Bertt. The Danmere Backer is a gadget designed to do the job, but I don't know how successful it is, or if it works with Mac.

Never heard of this,Bertt. Although I did hear of someone who tried to back up to his fridge but Windows kept freezing. :o)

I'm amazed at that.
