Donations needed: CDRW drives and old computers

I will be debuting the “Burn Your Own” system at Cerritos Center on March 12! The system allows audience members to burn a free, take-home audio recording of the concert. The ultimate concert omiyage! In the lobby after the show is a bank of computers with CD trays out, waiting for a blank CD. You walk up, drop in a blank CD, chat with On Ensemble for about 90 seconds and bing!, your CD is ready!

I’ve written and tested the software and cobbled together about 8 computers. I’m looking for approximately 15 CDRW drives and another 10 old computers. Considering so many people have DVDRW drives these days, I’m hoping we can put some of those old CD ones back to work.

If you have something that might fit the bill, please leave a comment below or email me at kris [at] OnEnsemble [dot] org!  Thank you!

    Dude, this is such an awesome idea. And Kris, you are pretty much the only person I know that could pull this off. Sorry, nothing to donate but can’t wait to get a CD!

    I should have an old CD-ROM drive or two. I think one is an external drive with only USB connectivity. Is that okay? I agree with Brent about this being a great idea!
