Ah, thank you, thank you. I just can't see wasting so much of my disk
[and bakup disks] for what are mostly voice/lectures.
I suppose I can buy a DVD-R[W] and fnd out, but is there any reason
why I can't have many hours of audio on a DVD? In other words, id a DVD
*only* for video? --Might be nice to gather (parts of) my favorite
onto one Very long-playing disk.
