I remember reading that the Archive Python drives were the ones that 
SGI shipped for this purpose, and have audio extraction support. I 
couldn't say off hand if that went for all Archive Python drives or 
perhaps just ones with special SGI firmware or something.

Googling for "archive python audio" brings up some helpful pages 
telling which OEM and firmware combos have the audio capability.
