Brilliant. Just the thing I needed. Two mp3s of approx. 1 MB in size disguised
as pkg-files by Newton MP3 converter transferred and installed flawlessly to
be played by MAD Newton. A file of 10 MBs was transferred to a card
with 14 MB space free, but the ethernet connection seemingly wasn't dropped
appropriately, audio soup couldn't be written correctly, MAD Newton said:
nothing to play. Maybe too large a file?
