[Athen] MP3 players

Is there some reason the student can't use a Victor Reader WAVE and store
the MP3's on CD? The Wave has a pretty big screen. Even as MP3's books can
get quite large and I don't know how much space you can actually expect to
get on a player of this type. Unfortunately Humanware hasn't gotten around
to including a direct USB input port on these animals. That would allow the
use of the huge capacity external hard drives we have these days.
