The zip drive or the CDs are simply a method for storing the songs without accessing the internet each time via the over-loaded Favorites tool. Everything has it's limitations and it is just like the "straw that broke the camel's back", you cannot haul a semi-trailer load in the back of a pickup truck LOL and neither the Belle nor the CS nephew can make that miracle happen.<quoted text>
This will not make sense, because it doesn't to me. But the 5,000 (give or take) songs are not, I'm told, actually in my computer as such. I have just simply transfered every one of them from one place to another and I have no claim to them, IF that's the proper way to say it. But getting them onto discs was my plan from the start except I didn't know it was going to be next to impossible! I've got a nephew in Springfield, ILL. that has a masters degree in computer science and is willing to help anyway he can but I DO NOT understand his language and I'm trying to sweet-talk the Belle into taking over. Wish me luck!
Another possibility is to create a portfolio or index (even on paper) or word document containing just the titles, then listen to the songs via a Google search.
