I popped ATMP into my DVD player for the first time a couple of days ago, and a funny thung happened - it wouldn't play the CD. This was odd, because Pioneer DVD and LD players will play CD-RWs and unfinalized CD-R's. I popped it into my LD player and all was cool. Did this mean my DVD player was defective? Fast forward to today. Reading the weekend newpaper, the was an AP article about the introduction of copy-proof CD's, which has been casually mentioned before. Attempts to rip mp3's from these CD's result in unpleasant pops and clicks which make the song less desireable for mp3 audio and for file sharing. According to the article, copy-protected Cd's will not play on CD_rOM drives or DVD players. They were never designed for copy-protection and retrofitting is causing all sorts of problems. Another sidebar to this Disc - Windows Media pPlayer does not properly recognize the Cd - The artist and album title come up, but asll the tracks are 'untitled'. Does this mean that Our beloved DVD players as replacements for CD players are going to be next in line at garage sales, pawn shops or (gasp) Ebay?
