Hmmm... I wonder if I can see what's on my computer from my TV w/o a DVD... I should copy it anyway. Always worried with a computer that old that it'll die.
Yes! Burn a copy! My old computer died and I haven't been able to boot it again to recover files. Fortunately I didn't really lose much. I got lucky and my DD & SIL gave me an old laptop they had. Otherwise, I'd have no computer at all. Fingers crossed here that you can get a laptop. Some of them are fairly inexpensive now. Relatively speaking anyhow. I googled it and it seems that some DVD players will play mp4 files and others won't. I'm pretty sure the one I have, as old as it is (another hand-me-down) wouldn't. For me it's a moot point since I don't currently have a TV.
