I have been burning audio CDs for more than a decade. I have had no problem using Nero's 'Disc Copy' to make duplicates of retail CDs so I could abuse my copies that I carried around with me or used in the car while storing my originals safely.
So I had this conversation with a friend about making audio CD copies, and he tells me that isn't the right way to copy retail CDs because they embed errors in them that will ruin any copies. Yes, I'm aware of programs like Eaxct Audio Copy, but I always thought it was overkill to use it to rip a CD on my drive and then burn the WAVs. My copies have always been glitch-free (to the ears, at least). I thought if a CD was copy-protected, I wouldn't even be able to read it on a player? I feel like someone who just realized after a lifetime that the Earth is actually round and not flat. What's the problem with copying an audio CD on Nero using 'Disc Copy' and copying in RAW mode?
