If you hate corrupted CDs, you should do the following: - go to a store and buy it - return it for a refund, saying "this has special copy protection and I can't get it to play in my CD player at home. I tried 2 different players and it didn't work. The fine print on the package says I can return it for a refund." The big question is, read the fine print on the package and see if there is a refund policy. Last year I bought the "More Music from the Fast and the Furious" soundtrack, and it DID have a no-questions-asked refund policy on it. The store clerk at Best Buy was very sympathetic: "Aw, man, I hope they aren't starting this copy protection sh** on everything". They are already aware that a certain percentage of CD players won't handle it (especially ones that are starting to use "computer" technology in them). Our goal is to make the percentage larger and more painful for them so they abandon it. It costs them a LOT to deal with returns.
