I'm not talking about some one stealing it. Yeah, I see your senility kicking in so I'll put it bluntly: your cloud is WIPED OUT, ERASED. NO music available because the cloud ITSELF no longer exists.
Now what'chyou gonna do??

Good for you. Can we negotiate a price for your physical collection(piece meal or by the dozen)?

I am using them all ;-)
I really do use PCs for all of my A/V needs. They are all on the
network so it is easy to move stuff around. There is one under 4 of
the 5 TVs here. The newest one is supposed to be "smart" but not
nearly as smart as one hooked to a PC. To start with the MP3 player in
my $1000 Samsung TV sucks as does the media player for watching stored
movies. (I am also in the process of ripping all of my DVDs)
I will keep them around but I doubt I will actually play them.
BTW a PC is a better DVD player than a regular store bought DVD
player. It is a whole lot easier to navigate straight to the move and
not have to screw with manually skipping or enduring 5 trailers for
movies you don't want to see.

Maybe next generation will have a led display so you can play music
without having to having to use the TV
You can buy one that comes with an internal hard drive. I recommend
buying the one I linked to instead. All versions will connect to your

The version that comes with it's own hard drive depends on your
network connection to transfer files from the computer to the player.
All players will read directly off of all shared drives on the
network. Since the network connection is slower, if you want storage
for the unit, it is best to buy an external hard drive and transfer
files to the drive with your USB connection. Having an external drive
also gives you the option of transferring files to another computer
using USB instead of a network connection.
It comes with two USB ports that will connect with all type USB
The Samsung smart TV we just bought does not really have any internal
user storage. The internal storage is just for apps. You do have 3 USB
ports and it will take just about any USB drive or memory stick. The
network connection is pretty funky and does not act like a normal PC
file sharing connection. You can enable sharing in Media player and
share the library tho.
I found it easier to simply "sneaker net" the files over on an
The Samsung player is not really that user friendly tho. I suppose if
you always watch a movie from beginning to end and want to remember
your place it is good but if you stop in the middle for some reason,
it stays stuck there, resuming from that point and I have not found an
easy way to just start a movie over. It also automatically starts the
next movie on the drive when the last one is over.
There may be some configuration options but I have not seen them.

I can't remember the last time I experienced such urge, as on this thread, to rid oneself of all physical music media and the equipment to play it on.
Pathetic and ignorant, at the very least.
