An what will this plugin do? Decompress ape files on the fly, right? If I didn't write previous post clearly: Audio CD standard (Redd Book) requires certain data format on disc, which ape file is not. Thus, you can't write ape files on Audio CD. You can, however, use software which converts ape files into correct format in an invisible way to you. Do we agree? :) Cheers, Karol -- Karol Kwiatkowski <karol.kwiat at gmail dot com> OpenPGP 0x06E09309
