As I did before. Great!
No, my mistake. Too hasty, here. I clicked on the old wave file. Your new realaudio file is actually in realmedia, and I need a plug-in to read a .rm file. Is anybody else in this boat? It strikes me, then, that getting Real Player Plus G2 will not solve the problem. It's a problem with my Netscape Version, isn't it? How many others of you out there can hear Boudewijn's .rm file (the Real Audio file)? How many can't? I have Netscape Communicator 4.0, but I need to know what plug-in will let me hear .rm files. When I click on "more info" it puts me in a page that says that I am missing some cool features that a plug-in will remedy, but after that it's pretty vague. Weirdly, when I uploaded .rm files to my website and tried to play them, they printed out in graphic form as gibberish. Not the "you have started to download a format with..." message. I found it easier just to change the extensions from .rm to .ra. But I can hardly ask you to do that for seventy sound files! Does your new recorder allow you to save in .ra format? If so, what recorder do you have? Sally

This has been answered. Again, sorry!
