So I have this "simulated Karaoke" setup, a pc, mixing board, a few mikes, amp and speakers, and on certain weekends if you listen real close while
along the Shenandoah river valley, you might hear the sounds of someone (ME) singing along with my favorite tunes blasting out of the JacKatMtn
Well over the years I have compiled a library of over 5000 songs on the PC harddrive, and so this past weekend felt like the right time to vocally
destroy some of my fave songs.....
Hit the power button on the PC and NOTHING!!!! ARRRGH!!!!
Open up the case and uh oh, the smell of burning electrical components.
I take out the PSupply, open it up and see a few exploded capacitors, so I purchase a new one thinking this would solve the problem...
NOT! no luck, so I am not going to sink anymore money into the dead PC, I must have killed it during my last assault on my musical archive
The plan is to buy a new PC to replace the one I am use for the internet, and replace the music PC with this one, the question
I have is....
Can I take the old HD (with my music) and set it up as a slave, and still access the music, or will I have to open up the cd vault and RE-upload
the thousands of songs?
