    I bought a CD on Tuesday and it has a copyright protection that I can't seem to bypass. I've never seen this before. I tried duping the CD directly to another CD and the songs come out all distorted. I tried ripping the songs from the CD and converting them to mp3's, wav's, and WMA Lossless files, but I had the same problem. In all the years I've been burning CD's, this is the first time I've encounter such tough copyright protection on an audio disc.

    Here are some of the programs I've used to burn the disc and/or convert the files:

    For Ripping I tried:

    - Audio Converter & Ripper v4.1
    - Audiograbber v1.83
    - ImTOO CD Ripper v1.0.33.908
    - Windows Media Player

    For Burning I tried:
    - Nero Ultra v6.6
    - Roxio Media Creator Platinum #7
    - CloneCD v5.1.0.0

    I have 2 burners in my computer and neither of these have worked:
    - Plextor PX-716A
    - Sony DRU710A

    This is the first time I haven't been able to successfully rip a CD. How frustrating! Man, I've been doing this for years. Stupid copywrite protection. The kicker is, I am the legitimate owner of the CD. I normally burn all my CD's so I can carry the burnt copy in the car and leave the original at home. What a crock of shit.

    If you guys could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Take it back to the store and demand your money back. Don't let them get away with this shit.

    You may want to run a search on forums.afterdawn.com

    They are pretty good at that stuff and you may find the answer there.
