[vip_students] Re: copying cd's

Hi Joan Ann,

The only copying software I have is Nero.

One of my new resolutions I intend to keep, [smile] is to get to grips with
PC audio!

All mini or other tutorials on the subject I welcome.

Thank you to all those who have submitted material in that regard.

I am actually going to dust off the ould Perkins and braille them out!

How retro!! [smile]!

All the best,

Tony Sweeney.
