Strangely enough, the musician John Kameel Farah who worked with Dr. Dubinski on this DVD has been highlighted today on the CBC Radio 2 website. What a coincidence!

I got the file but Nero doesn't burn dvd with .img files. Which program to use? Must be freely downloadable.

Smallphi, use ImgBurn - http://www.videohelp.com/tools/ImgBurn - just click on "mirror download". It will write .img as well as .iso files to DVD disk.

Do yourself a favour and uninstall that Nero bloatware!
