    Default Copy protected CDS

    when i listen to richard ashcroft on my computer (its an original cd) i can't rip the songs on to my hard drive meaning i can't put it in a mix with other songs. this is so stupid as if i had of saved my 30$ and downloaded them illegally i would have had more convenience listening to it. Anyways is there any way i can rip them on to my comp. i do have nero if that helps. thanks

    Try using Nero to copy, convert to mp3 (if that's the format you want) and save to your Music file. Which program were/are you using? If it's WMP, it's not the greatest for copying, and I believe it may be the problem in ripping from a copywritten disk (you are allowed to make a copy of owned retail cds). If WMP, let us know, there are options that can be turned off.

    Default I had the same problem

    I had that problem and someone turned me onto this program

    Linked edited out BG

    it's a program that records the music while it plays and saves it in the format that you want.

    Am I wrong I thought the copyright protection was put there to protect the performers rights?
    I remember years ago filling in endless Performing Rights Society forms to let them know what music I had played during a weeks performance all that was so the musicians and composers could get their percentage of the take, it seems a shame to deprive these people of their living.

    Not to start a debate and hijack a thread but:

On top of this, the labels typically retain the copyrights to the recordings, which allows them to profit from the musicians' catalogs indefinitely. "It's as if you received a loan for a house," says Ed Robertson, one of BNL's lead vocalists. "But when you finish paying off that loan, the label says thank you and keeps the house."
    Also, in the list of H2G recommended software there might be something that could be of use to you: http://www.help2go.com/Tutorials/Com..._Software.html
