I Can't Read!

Ok - I can read, but my computer's CD/DVD RW drive can't read two CDs. I am trying to put them into iTunes, but my computer won't even play them. These two CDs are "copy controlled".

Any advice?

DO NOT put them in your CD drive or try to have itunes read them. It might kill your cd drives.

return them. are they from Sony? if so, it's likely you've a DRM rootkit installed. Google for Sony and rootkit to get the skinny.

OMG! Sharon, I just freaked out when I read your comment. Of course, I figured out that they wouldn't play in my drive AFTER I put them in there. These CDs were made in the EU and according to an article that I found they're really giving folks a fit there. Check out http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2003/7/10/181528/569

I've tried other CDs after I tried these and I haven't noticed any damage or slowness. But if I do I am totally going to I don't know what - don't even want to go there! - this is with my new laptop! It really pisses me off b/c I should be able to move the music onto my computer and listen to it all I want - after all I bought it.

Oh well, I am not going to buy another CD with Copy Control ANYTHING! And you don't buy one either! This is my new mission for 2006!

Sam - returning things in Israel is next to impossible.
