Hello, Charles,

Yes, that was what I was thinking about the drives.  I think Mike will 
eventually win the DVDs soon.  You know that we could put a CD in a DVD drive, 
yes, and it will work.  Be aware that we have a few different types of CD and 
DVD, so it is something you could discuss with Mike. I believe he will read my 
and your messages hereon this list for himself to understand what is going on.

Thank you very much!  Have a nice afternoon!
