Another problem is, those (CD-ROM rewinders) came as add-ons to PCs, and now
that only DVD-ROM drives are being installed in PCs we're outta luck. I
need them (DVD rewinders) free-standing anyway.

Actually Peter, CD-ROM rewinders will work just as well on DVD. The only
problem is when they confuse the "D"s in CD and DVD and fast forward to the
end.
