Thanks, Stschoen. I will continue to work on this too. I will report any meaningful solutions.
I have to say, however, that this is a problem that SHOULD have been worked out by Audulus from the beginning. I mean, being able to transfer and open its own files is about as rudimentary a function as anything. I am kind of surprised that this problem persists, given the volume of activity on this site among Audulus users. This makes me think that there MUST be an obvious solution that I am somehow overlooking.
