Please note: To play the music on this CD on newer Windows PCs (with XP and Vista), you will need to turn off the Windows AutoPlay feature.  The Skandia CD contains both music and dance directions (as web pages).  When this CD was produced, Windows AutoPlay preferred to play music over displaying a web page.  But, with XP or Vista AutoPlay enabled you will see the web page instead, and have no music option.  This problem only troubles newer Windows PCs.
