Well, if/when you *do* try, please clue me in. --I'm too new to DVD's and tooo che--er, thrifty to buy a ten pack of blanks. I'm not sure that I have three hours of "favorites"; probably, but no more. Most of my favorite tunes are on tape--pre-recorded and hi-fidelity, but the problem is turnning analogue to digital. Anyway, good to know that DVD's can "play" datafiles! gary > > Howie -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
