Do you watch and delete or..?

Do you watch and delete the fansubs or do you save them onto a CD-R or for those lucky enough to have a DVD burner a DVD?

I don't have a DVD burner so I can only save em onto a CD-R, which as you may know holds only a couple of episodes at most. I would end up spending way too much on CD-R's to save series on to disc so I only save the ones I really really like.

Otherwise I watch and delete.

What do you do?

I burn them on CD-Rs.
I almost went through a 100 CD-Rs in a month and a half.

Either burn them on a DVD-R (buying DVDs is getting boring though..) or store them in external 120GB HDDs.

Mostly I watch and delete.
I burn only when I think that the anime is really good and that I will re-watch it later

I'll burn a series if I can fit the whole thing onto one CD, but otherwise I just delete everything.

The way I look at it, even the anime I own on DVD I rarely ever watch more than once.

So I don't bother to burn them onto CD-R.

Plus the ones I like I'll end up buying when they get licensed anyway.

I only save the ones I reallly really like. But soon I'll be getting a DVD burner and really big hard drives in a new computer, so that opinon may change.

Mostly just save havnt struggled for space yet though i plan to store on DVD-RW that way if i ever get bored i can delete them and reuse the cd's.

Though i can imagine this is going to cost me a pretty penny.....Oh well :P

200gb+ hd clusters then onto dvdrs

btw at my local computer store the Maxell dvdrs with jewel cases are selling at $2 CDN each, which is very very cheap (considering even a 25discs bundle costs $60 cdn).

Watch and burn.
I have about 350 cds by now.

Also, I burn a few onto VCD to run in my DVD (better quality, sound, and it's cooler to see on TV)

I burn everything I download to cd, no matter how bad it is. That way I can show the good series to friends cursed with dial-up connections. As for saving the bad series, well I went through the trouble of downloading, so I mught as well save them, just to say I have it.

That is exact why I do it.

Actually, VCD is crap quality. Just output your computer display directly to the TV and it looks much better than any VCD.

I'm new to the whole scene so I hdon't have much anime. Right now I'm just saving it on my harddrive because I have room (not much, but I don't download much). I'm pretty conservative.

But I am going to burn Scrapped Princess on to CD-R's. One of the reasons is actually because I have a friend who wants to watch it but isn't allowed to DL it.

The way I look at it is, I spend about $0.35 per cd-r and about $0.05 to store each one, so a 26 episode series coast me around $2.50-$2.80 to own. I've yet to download a complete series that I wouldn't pay $2.50 to own if I saw it in the store.

I definately back up just in case i want to watch it again out of curiosity or someone wants to borrow it....

I really wish i had a dvd burner cos after 2 yrs, 2500 cds of anime is not a easy thing to manage.....

doesn't matter how much I spend on the CDs..... Spending the time to download is what counts.... I just can't bear to part with anything I've downloaded... its like deleting my effort.....
