Yeah, that's kind of what I decided.  Besides, while I have burned many CDs 
with iTunes, I don't believe they burn data files and the new Toast 6 is 
really cool looking, though I loaded it (after recommendations from from 
some list members) and when I went back to check it out, I can't find it.  I 
haven't had time to look a lot for it or to reload it.  I have used Discus 
Lite, which comes with it.
