This morning I was going to put in one of those bargain-bin Sesame Street VCR tapes in for the girls to watch. It wouldn't go in the slot. I examined the machine carefully and found a CD inside there - a Norton Internet Security CD. It was wedged in the machine and quite difficult to get out!
So someone in our household took the trouble to take a computer software disc out of the CD rack by the computer, take it over to the DVD/VCR player in the living room, and attempt to jump-start it by inserting what they thought was a DVD - in the big wide VCR slot. I know this technology is confusing at times, but my husband really should know better than that.
