Hey Paff, I took your advice and bought a Pioneer CLD-D503. It recently got a brand new belt, and everything was checked out to ensure that all was good going forward. The price was good for a player that received high praise. I got so caught up with it's condition that I forgot to check the most important piece of advice you gave me...make sure it has the remote. Luckily eBay had one for this model in excellent condition for $20. Paff, thank you so much for all of your advice. I picked up a video capture device for my PC cheap so I'll be burning my Dawn of the Dead Perfect Collection very soon.
