Thanks to all who wrote.  Problem is solved.  I did not remember that we
had plugged an external DVD player into the port on the XO I had and played
DVDs.  Suggestions are very welcome. I want the following to circulate
around the world.

DVDS for Education and Training

A CD holds 650 MB.  The Bible is 1.4 MB.  Therefore, *a CD holds 464 copies
of the Bible.  A DVD holds 3,000 copies of the Bible.  A dual layer DVD
holds 6,000 copies of the Bibles.*

Just imagine what would happen if every school, church, village, library,
etc in the bush of Africa, the jungles of Latin America and the mountains
of Asia had a used computer and DVD library.  The internet is not necessary
and is too expensive for billions of people.  People can study for hours on
a used computer using DVDs with little or no cost.  Thousands of DVDs are
available on hundreds of subjects and many are free.  A complete library
can be on one DVD!.  I have farming DVDs.  Use them to train students,
teachers, medical people, religious leaders, those needing vocational
skills, etc.  HHTwebsite copier [free] can be used to download websites
into a computer from the internet.  Use CDburner XP [free] to burn to a DVD.

7B people are on the earth and 2B cannot read [400M in India. 2M in the
USA] but they can be educated using video/audio DVDs.

All computers operate internally on 12 v.  Those without electricity use a
computer, internally altered, to operate directly on 12 v. from a battery
with a solar charger [email for instructions].  A pedal*/*powered generator
can be used.  This opens up a whole new way teach.

*School in a Suitcase:*
http://winministries.org/website/index.php/nation2nation, a religious
group,has hundreds of schools in many countries; 100 in Cuba.   A
person with a computer [operating on 12 v.], printer and DVD library can
travel from place to place, on a schedule, to teach and train people.  This
is a very simple, inexpensive, effective way to educate children, youth and
adults   Use a bicycle or a bicycle and trailer for transportation.

*Mobile schools: *

Vietnam*:*  Computer literacy is a luxury.  The Dariu Foundation provides
computer training to kids in remote villages using a mobile school equipped
with computers, internet access and access to DVDs in agriculture, animal
feeding, etc. Not only kids but clients benefit from this school. Dariu.org

* *

India*:  *

Kenya*:*  Education for pastoralist communities.

Private business: Show movies for a fee.  Rent time to study on DVDs.
