You can put the files back onto the stream in the $VROtherbooks folder, the
$vrPodcasts folder, or the $VRMusic folder. Depending on where you put
them, they will have different playing characteristics. For instance, if
you put a file in the $VROtherbooks folder, that one file will be considered
a single "book", when it finishes, you will need to go back to the bookshelf
with key 1, then press the 6 key to advance to the next file. Hope this
