    Ripping CDs

    I'm not an advocate of piracy, but I do like to take songs from CDs I've purchased and make myself a "jam" CD. My 8 year old son has requested that I build him a jam CD. He wants songs from U2, Metallica, Van Halen, and a few other bands (can't fault his taste).

    My problem is that he wants a couple of songs from Velvet Revolver's CONTRABAND disc and they've put this crap on it that prevents me from ripping the songs to my computer.

    Back before the Links got hacked, someone had posted in the VR thread how to get around this clever little device. I'd really appreciate it if anyone who knows can tell me how to rip the CONTRABAND songs to my computer. I'm sure VR won't be the only band to include this feature on their CDs, so it will probably be of benefit to other Linkers in the future.

    I don't have VR's album, but I do know that a lot of discs contain autorun anti-piracy programs. To defeat it from running when you put the disc in, hold down both shift keys.

    Apparently that stuff doesn't work on Macintosh. I've got Contraband on my computer right now... No pun intended.
