I've never even used a DVD/hard-disk recorder, so sorry if the answer's obvious. Is there any (or all?) DVD recorder with hard-disk, which allows audio CD's to be ripped to the hard-disk, so that music can be selected & played via an on-screen interface? If so, dyou have to stick to the CD bitrate, or can can they be encoded at lower/mp3 rates? Also, how easy is it to rip and playback songs - eg just to select one CD and play all that through? Will my dear old mum be able to use it? Many thanks!
