There are some TV shows that my son loves (Blues Clues, Wiggles, ETC.) that have little or no DVD titles to choose from. I am considering buying a DVD-R drive for my PC to record my own from tapes we have bought or shows we could record off the TV, but I hate to invest the money and time if it will not work in the RES. I could not find any info about this in the owners manual, and my dealers repsonse was "what's a DVD-R?" PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN!!! Thanks!
