Hi guys n gals

I am trying to find the song "Rain" by the Kiwi band "Dragon" but so far I am having no luck. Any help will be much appreciated in finding it on/in any medium.

Cheers

Scott

I've just checked and it's on iTunes and you're likely to also find it on a lot of Kiwi music compilation albums.

I'm glad I checked that out for you because I've just noticed that iTunes also has Young Years which is a Dragon song that I've been trying to get my hands on for ages.

Ahhh,,, But is it DRM free?

The CD or a compilation containing it should not be too hard to find. I have the music video on DVD somewhere (it's life is now more of a converted file on my computer)

Drm.. boo!  I think it's bound to be on a kiwi compilation somewhere. I have it but it came on a Gold Kiwi Hit Disc from NZ On Air.

  1. Buy on iTunes
  2. Burn to CD
  3. Import back into iTunes
  4. Update ID3 Tag Info (i.e. you will have to type the song and artist name etc in)
  5. DRM Free!

Waste a CD and then get 128Kbps quality,

I'll stick to CD's and DRM free legal downloads and the pirated stuff for the rest. (Well suggest something better!)

Not suggesting that you should bypass DRM.

Make an ISO image with Nero or your favourite burner.

Mount the image with Microsoft's cutsie little virtual CD from

http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/b/6/7b6abd84-7841-4978-96f5-bd58df02efa2/winxpvirtualcdcontrolpanel_21.exe

Save $0.30 on a CD.

Very nice tip thanks!

Helps save some un-recyclable cd from going to waste. Cheers.

DRM is awful stuff and should be bypassed.
