PS: if you see this logo on a "Compact disc", DO NOT BUY IT! It will play only in a limited range of players and can cause other issues

I have over a dozen copy protected audio CDs, and have never had a problem getting the music onto my PC or MP3 player...

Oh no, of course not, No problems actually COPYING them but when you legitimatly play them in your mp3 or DVD capable stereo or mp3 player... no go.. They seem to have gotten better now, just a large file "stops" copying. pretty mich a mixed mode CD with a phony size file in the data section.


Say it after me, DRM S. U. X. DRM S. U. X. becase it does.

Yip, DRM has only suceeded in wasting my time circumventing it so I can get fair use out of music I have purchased (Digirama to name one... burnt to audio CD then re-imported, and had to re-type all tag info because it was all single tracks, not whole CDs that CDDB could tag for me)

oh dear., sounds like that. I mean, You can download any mp3 illegally you are free to copy, use etc off the net, but when you do the right thing and buy them, you are left with poor quality songs which need huge overheads and complicated rubbish rather than just a plain ol mp3. I've bought a few from digirama ages ago, realized the problem, Started up limewire and downloaded the songs I just bought, just put them on my iPod.

(I have moaned about this before so i'll leave it)
