	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!
