    Awwwhhhh, cute! Yes, I have not seen much in the way of "double albums" in cassette tape format so we needed some resolve and I think you discovered that! But what now for an "EF"??! Electronic Flashchip recorder? But lets hope it's not a model FIVE otherwise we would be stuck with an EF5! Windy city (-:

    I think I may have had a double album or book on tape that the second tape was Side C and Side D

    if you recorded on both sides of a CD I might see the logic behind that but since you can only record on one side of the CD no

    No.

    Sides on tapes can also be numbered 1 and 2, or I and II.

    Neither of those fits with your idea.

    And what about two-tape sets that Could have had sides C and D, or 3 and 4, or III and IV?

    That pushes your concept even further past the edge of the cliff.

    CDs are so named because the letters represent Compact Disc,

    which is a comparison to the size of LPs.

    You are not the first to come up with this brainless notion,

    but we can hope you are the last.
