Yeah, I also hate those piracy things. It only makes things harder for normal users... pirates will STILL be able to get the sweet sweet songs inside.

Huh, I didn't have any problems loading the Air cd onto either my windows or mac PCs.
I also bought my copy of Talkie Walkie at borders, however I bought the cd + dvd combo which was $14.99 (whereas the cd alone was $18.99... like anything the record companies do makes sense) and didn't have any trouble with listening to the cd on computers at all. I'm really surprised that a "computer whiz" such as you would have problems as minor as this!

Oh well, you can always "buy" albums at a little "store" called Kazaa..

Isn't it ironic how they try to prevent losing money by stopping piracy but when they're trying to stop piracy they lose fans and money.

What?? What does a CD have to do with capitalism? I suggest you learn the meaning of it before posting a BBS. Anyway, it's just so you cheapskates don't download it off the Web for free.

Yes even though they're methods are stupid and they are being greedy downloading music is not a bad thing because its usually jjust one or two songs. Besides if we can't download music then what will we do with these expensive mp3 players?

Oh, right.

What other genres do you listen to? Personally, I'm in to Alternative Rock (Korn, Linkin Park, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ancubus, blah, blah, blah). Those bands don't fuck you over, that's for sure.

I know an easy(but not inexpensive) way to get songs from a Cd with copy protection. Buy or download the demo of Sound Forge.(Most of you NewGrounds users will just get software from a P2P software program tho). And in Sound Forge, there is an option somewere called extract music from cd. And then you can extract each track you want and save it to your Hard Drive. And I think no Copy Protection will work. Also with Sound forge you can burn songs onto a cd and make it work with PS2/Xbox!

In all fairness, it's not the bands but the record companies and distributers who put that rubbish on CDs. Still, your better off without air; may I suggest Relationship of Command by At the Drive In if you don't already have it?

On the plus side, maybe this will encourage you to support small independant labels like Ipecac in the future. They have some cool stuff like the latest Tomahawk record and indeed the first one as well - on the latter check out God Hates A Coward, it's a thunderously good tune.

Do you have your brains stuck in your ass? Do you honestly think that a record company likes that people want their money back, for cd's that don't work the way they should? That gets them into more trouble then they allready are! Copy protection is an act of despiration, because of the loss of income. I'm not saying it's the RIGHT way, because offcourse your cd has to work on all players, and the people who developed the protection, should have developed it better, so that it plays on all media playes.

The point is that downloading your music is NOT the way to get better quality cd's it will only make things worse, untill no music comes out anymore at all.

I have no choice but to use my comp because my cd player is AWOL. I don't usually have any problems with running cds on computer - Just it autoloads windows media player.

Wow. I really hate it when people say that. It reminds me of a dick I used to know.

Capitalism is horrible, but this is hardly related. It's just money-grabbers, that would exist in Socialist and Communist societies, too.

Wow that sucks! The future of music is corporations trying out proprietary anti-copying systems, destroying music in the process... and then going out of business as listeners turn to labels that just make working music! It's almost like these "episodic gaming" systems where you buy a game in 4 installments of $30 a piece, making 120 dollar games you can only get through download and that don't work. If it ain't pleasing customers, it ain't gonna last!

Since the data part is the first part read by the computer when the disk is put in, covering the track will cause the computer to skip right over it. (The data track is usually seperated by a sharp line on the back of the disk) Not sure if this helps anyone, and people don't really need to be sticking tape on their cds, but ya gotta do, what ya gotta do.

It's not work. It's putting a picture you drew years ago and have used hundreds of times on a traced bitmap background and motion tweening it around the stage while you rant about something. Then sitting back and earning a ton and getting your butt kissed by millions of retarded preteens.
