using a hp1537a dds3 as a video?

ok crazy idea but i noticed that when i backup a dvd to a tape, the transfer rate seems more than capable of supporting dvd quality video playback. presumably if someone wrote some software to interface with the drive, it could be used like a video recorder? just an idea for people to think about over christmas.

No way. You can store audio and DVD only in DDS data format (as files, not in audio and video formats). Look at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=lpg51220&locale=en_US
