If you get an audio CD with copy protection (i.e. the manuafacturer sells you an audio cd with the compact disk logo, but it still does not play).
- The logo means that the cd follows a set of standards that lets you know the compatability. Seems some idiots thought they would make a corrupted "standard" and make it so a disk would not play in some cases but would in others - nice!
I suppose that having a standard is nice, but the bad part is that everyone can invent their own standard.
But I digress... Here give this a try if you want to just listen to the damn thing:
cdparanoia -s -B

That should dump out a series of wave files (at least it did from one of my copy protected cd's)!
p.s. BMG - you suck!
