> Copying the files across isn't too much of a problem, but I'm not sure

> I don't suppose that simply copying the relevant entries from the

> Has anyone created a script that would allow me to do this for a bunch
> of recordings automatically?
> Any help would be very much appreciated.
> Cheers,
