 	Nope... it's just historical cruft.  It's an MPEG2 file named with 
a .nuv extension.  It's been discussed on the list before and so far not 
worth the bother of "fixing."  Do a

'file /mnt/store/10*.nuv' and you'll see:

/mnt/store/1004_20041002115600_20041002120100.nuv: MPEG system stream data

something like that.
