just bought me a brand new album, it's copyrighted and i have no real problem with that. but it won't play on my stereo (an excellent cambridge audio). works on my sister's rubbish hi-fi though. anyway, i tried copying aforementioned disc. but that won't work. tried saving the music as mp3s on my computer. also doesn't work. so i have a nice new album that i can't really listen to. any way around this?
it's the new Funeral For a Friend album. i've bought other so-called "copyright protected" albums quite recently and had no problems at all. even been able to save the mp3s and transfer them to my portable player.
You can use Clone CD to make an exact copy of the cd whether it is protected or not, but you would end up with an (almost) exact 1:1 copy and would not remove the copyright protections (I have done this several times for media I legally own but have had no trouble with the original cd not playing).
According to the website Clone CD is being discontinued for legal reasons. I'm glad I kept the latest version on a backup cd because the latest version of Nero (6.something) refuses to copy backups of copyright protected games/music (mainly media using Safe Disc 2 and the other new protections).
