The method can further comprise the steps of: (F) comparing a user requested delay to a predetermined delay; (G) changing from one at a time playback to continuous playback whenever the user requested delay is not greater than the predetermined delay; and, (H) changing from continuous playback to one at a time playback whenever the user requested delay is greater than the predetermined delay.
