if your CD juke boxes are able to recognize mp3 CDR it's a rather good strategy... if not that's a far too much expensive one. i would prefer to use some huge hard drives for such process, such as the new IBM 20 gigs that will appear soon. Interesting side effect : you can copy easily your files and thus make backups of your cds, far much secure, and this strategy is useful for other kind of files too.
