BINGO! That seems to be doing the trick. I had a feeling it had something to do with the kmttg.jar script not be the right right thing to call initally but I don't understand all that technical stuff. Thanks so much for your help. I can't wait to see in the morning if everything new tonight has transferreed. Edit: I awoke this morning to find the two recordings from last evening transferred fine and the computer was back in sleep mode. In other words, everything ran as I hoped for.
