Just read about the safeaudio copy protection.
I've bought a cd, with on the cover the text: This cd won't play on cd/mac
As I have been reading, I asume that this cd is protected with SafeAudio.
When I put it in my reader device (a Plextor 32 speed scsi cd-rom) and put a blank in my burner (PlexWriter 24x10x40 ide (my 8 speed plexwriter died 2 weeks ago :(), and startup nero (newest version that was available), i could copy the cd perfectly 1:1.
Listened the cd, and there was no problem.
The pc used for burning is a machine running windows 98, no patched CDFS.vxd or what, just 100 % original.
So it is possible to copy it 1:1 without doing hard things.
Or the cd is just another protected cd...
The copied cd is from a Dutch artist called Frans Bauer - Durf Te Dromen (cover is on http://www.miamigocovers.com in the section New/Nieuw, if you want to see about the text in the lower right corner about playing it on pc/mac). Maybe someone can tell me if it is protected or what.
Ps. If I explore the cd, then I can see the .cda tracks normaly, and in nero I see 15 tracks instead of the 14 that are on the cover (so I think track 15 contains the protection (?)).
