For the record, next time save yourself a LOT of headache if you can't get
one of the software packages I mentioned before.  At the very least get
yourselfa  decent CD player with auto-pause functionality.  It will pause at
the end of the track automatically, and cue up the next track.  This can be
found on many decent players these days intended for stage use, but not on
things like walkmans or home stereo CD players.

Likewise these days it would probably be worth it to look into a flash based
playback unit if you can instead of CDs.  Should be much more dependable due
to not being effected by vibrations.  This is the reason why MD stayed
popular in theater in fact.

But ideally get yourself a Mac and QLab for the time being, honestly.  It
makes all the difference in the world.
