Hi Roland:

Thanks for getting back to me.  I tried your suggestion, but it did not
work.  Here's what I did:

1 Tried to pkg_delete cdrtools
that failed because of dependencies

2 pkg_delete -f
that deleted the old crtools

3 install compat5x
it became necessary some time time ago

4 installed 2.01.01a11 from ports with make install clean
installed successfully

Now when I start xcdroast the main menu comes up, but there is no option 
for DVD only CD.

What else can I do to try to figure this out?

Thanks,

Andy
