Hi, Jim,

I have just about stopped making CDs. I'm delivering everything 
electronically, mostly via Dropbox.

Just a quick note that back in the day I was doing that, I did stock 80 
minute blanks, but I did find the last batch a bit shy of 80:00, I don't 
know if 79:50 would work, but I suspect that Mark Whitehouse's number is 
close to what I ended up doing.

But, more pertinent to your current issue, I stocked single-width two-CD 
jewel cases because I had LOTS of projects that wouldn't even fit on an 
80-minute disc. The good news for us is I got to charge for two CDs 
worth of "CD Prep!"

I don't miss doing CDs.

Quality tape transfers -- even from hard-to-play tapes.
