Thanks for the software recommendation. As for the format/burner/cd drive thing...just call me a pitbull...an old one maybe, but still dogged in determination. Can't tell I was brought up by Depression Era parents that never threw anything out, used all till it fell apart, lol, then sewed or patched it back together....can you? If nothing else, it got the older windows brain working (No!, not 3.1, started there though) and thinking.
Thank You Sir,
