Hi John:

You said that your client has the analog originals on hand. I would suggest that he not put too much 
time or money into sussing out problems with CDR media made a decade ago in a Sony CD recorder. 
Rather, he should spend his time and money re-transferring the material, in high resolution, to a 
modern storage system. And he should be aware of budgeting for future expenses to maintain and 
migrate the data.
