The only shows that I've been keeping is Bleach and Kyou Kara Maou. Everything else I watch and delete. I might keep Advent Children for a little while longer.

First of all, I watch a few eps. of the anime to determine whether I like it or not. It can sometimes take weeks for me to get around to watch an eps. of a new series I d/led (that was the case with FMA, to my misfortune).

Anyway, I judge whether I like the show or not, and decide whether or not to continue the series. Since I d/l so few anime, I rarely stop following a particular series (unless I'm really unimpressed, such as with "Gun X Sword").

So when I get anime on the hard drive, their next stop is to be burned onto a CD/R. Once I do so, I watch the eps. on the CD, and delete the subsequent eps. on the computer. Sometimes, I am forced to re-download certain eps. of particularly favorite series since I noticed that the comp. has some trouble reading some CDs.

If I like the series enough, then I buy it on DVD, although the fansubs still stay around in CD form.

Ah... I have so little space on my hard drive that I don't have any other option but to delete the files almost immediately after watching. While starting a new series, I hope to detremine quickly whether I like it or not.. since now I have a burner and can save the ones I like more onto CDs. Usually I don't burn even my favourites if the series is long, although Prince of Tennis is an exception... wink.gif. Sometimes I'll download the eps again if I've deleted them but decided that the series is something spectacular after all.
Hmmm... aside from PoT I burnt(or am burning) FMA, Fullmoon wo Sagashite, X, Kyou Kara Maou!, Gravitation, Yami no Matsuei, Prétear, Tactics, Spiral, Sukisyo and Loveless... Also sometimes just random eps from (for example) CCS, Yakitate!! Japan, Hikaru no Go

Haha, FMA had the honor of remaining on my HD for about 6 months, but I have a little 40 GB laptop, so I finally had to delete it to make room for new stuff. You guys just delete stuff? I've burned pretty much everything onto DVDs. (Yes, I'm one of those creeps who hoards fansubs and never pays for a thing.) I love my dvd burner sooo much! 4.7 GB dvds are so much better than crappy 700 MB cds, and it burns faster. Virtually everything I've watched made it onto dvds too, since if I don't like a show well enough to keep it, I generally don't bother to finish watching it.

Jellybean, I too am dismayed by the small number of video files a 700 MB disc can hold, so I have a few questions.

How many typical fansub files can a R/DVD hold?

How much is a DVD burner? DVDs?

Hmm, I'm not sure what a good DVD burner price is, because mine came with my computer, but Dell's website has a bunch of external drives for between $100 and $200. Dell's stuff If you go to Sam's or someplace and buy the blank dvds in bulk, they come to about 40 cents per disc, if I remember correctly. They're more expensive if you buy fewer of them at a time.
And they're great because I can usually get a full 26 episode series on one dvd, if the episodes are around 130-150 MBs each, and the FMA fansubs for 1-51 fit nicely onto two discs (whereas it would have taken like 17 cds, and who wants to mess with that.)

the average dvd is 4.7 GB, with the average 23 min fansub being around 150MB-ish it comes to something like 31 episodes per dvd.

you can get a decent dvd burner for around 100, i wouldn't recommend going for anything lower than that since those may die sooner. as for dvds.. well for a spindle of 50 4.7s you should have to pay no more than $35-$40.... now if you were to upgrade to 8.4s, and these are only needed to direct copy retail dvds without any compression, a spindle of 50 would is around $90-$100.

Thank you everyone, very helpful.

I have a Dell laptop, so I was finiky about adding a DVD burning device, but knowing there are external versions out there...

(plans on getting a DVD burner)

Hopefully they are not hard to install, I have never done it before.
