Default Music CD – The New Copy Protection Scheme

Ok, there has to be a THT brain-iac out there that knows all about the new copy protection that is on CDs. I bought the new Sarah Brightman CD, ‘Fly’ but I can’t rip it to anything, my computer, my MP3 player, nothing.

I’m using Windows Media Player 10 to do my ripping. Anyone know how to get around this new evil software? Also, any suggestions on other application for ripping CDs would be appreciated.

Thanks!

F**K YOUR MAC COMMERCIALS, FASTFJR!!! Go start your own thread instead of sh!tting all over this one!

This thread is supposed to be a discussion about the new copy protection files that are being put on some newer CDs…and how to get around them. Fwiw, FASTFJR, here are a couple iApple laptops visiting here, so far, they aren't getting it done, either.

I am not talking about pirating the music; I already own it. I just want to (a) move to my MP3 and (b) back it up. Both are legal.


Edit: I've noticed Amazon is putting bold warnings about the new copy protection next to the title of CDs that have it. I hope this isn't the wave of the future because it mean no new music can be played on MP3 players unless you pay again to download a song. Pay again, meaning I've already paid for the CD.

I know, it was a joke.
Did you try another program? I personally have had nothing but trouble using WMP. I like Roxio which came pre-installed on my PC. In today's age where people move thier files around to MP3 or the like, the music industry will kill what little is left of retail sales of CDs if this copyright protection is for real and the owner cannot move files around.

Got it. Here’s how: used an iApple laptop to “rip” a copy of the copy protected CD to a blank CD-R. The iApple only copied the music files leaving all of the other, extraneous copy protection files off. The copy to CD-R was rip-able by the PC.

Fastfjr, thanks for the links. I'll read a little later, need to keep ripping right now.

I had read about the new copy protection files that are on the front of new CDs but didn't realize how much of a p.i.t.a. they were.

Glad it worked out for you. I still don't understand what in your Windows PC is not letting you copy the CD.

Try using a sharpie to put a black ring around the edge of the cd. Some companies put a random data track at the beginning...a Windows PC sees this and doesn't know what to do with it...so it does nothing. The sharpie covers up this track so the PC sees only music. I've done this before on a CD but was like last year...don't know if it's the same copy pretection.

It's not the pc; it Windows Media Player--a horrible piece of software.

Download a 3rd party ripper; I'm sure there are several (google it) that can get buy the copy protection without having to go through the gyrations of buring to a blank Cd then rip that back to .mp3.

google slysoft and/or anydvd, that should take care of your problems, they used to have a 20 day trial period just to see if it fits your purpose.

Gee. Millions of dollars spent on years of research and a few hours on the 'net yields a work-around. Somebody's job security just took a nasty whack.
