Sights and Sounds: Music and Other Multimedia 123 · Now Playing--This section shows information about the currently playing media (see Figure 11.2). For an audio CD, the left side of the window shows a visualization (a psychedelic pattern that moves in time with the music) and the right side shows the playlist, the list of tracks on the disc. For a DVD, the left side shows the movie and the right side shows the various chapters that comprise the movie. You can jump directly to a track or chapter by double-clicking it. · Media Guide--This section displays the Web page, assuming your com- puter is connected to the Internet. This page gives you access to all kind of media marvels, including songs, videos, movie trailers, news clips, live feeds, and more. · Copy from CD--This section enables you to copy one or more tracks from an audio CD to your computer's hard disk. See the "Hard Disk Rock: Copying Tracks from a CD" section later in this chapter. · Media Library--This section organizes the media that you've played and that's on your computer into various categories.
