EMI music CD DRM issue
 
Hi,
My friend bought me a Mozart CD on the EMI Classics label. I eagerly loaded
it into Kubuntu and it comes up in Konqueror with all kinds of autorun
Windowsy looking stuff. No actual music files that I can find.

It says it's "Copy controlled" :(

Does anyone have a clue? I assume that its a multi-session CD of some stripe -
how can I have a look at the entire disk and/or rip the tracks off it so I
can listen to them?

If all else fails, I'll dust-off the laptop and see what it does.

I've managed to rip most of my CD collection including the 'copy controlled'
ones using either KAudioCreator or K3B. I've so far only had one CD that
wouldn't rip and that was Layla by Derick and the Dominoes SACD.

---> I also find that Xine plays copy-controlled CDs with no problem. I just play them like any normal CD; Xine doesn't even notice that they are different. I know I had to enable DMA for the drive, but I think that was to play DVDs, not CDs. It was a long long time ago.


sudo apt-get install xine

should fix your problem if you don't want to rip the CD.

(I like the Xine interface better too, but of course that's a matter of taste.)


Wafa.

Well, to answer my query, use:
cdparanoia -B
It went to the cd rom, found the tracks and made me a bunch of wav files.
Very cool.

this comes from the M$ data track.
The data track is not compatible with CDDA Standard.
This is not a pure CDDA standard CDDA. It's a hybride junk.

The CDDA standard compatible tracks are mostly placed behind
the CD-Rom Data track, which is containing the DRMjunk.

Some of the Programs in the CD-Rom track may infect a silly
windoze system with Root-Kits, such as Sony did last years.
The Sony Root-Kit made unwanted changes to a running
windoze and destroyed some systems and mad such systems
proven insecure.

Best method to deal with all kind of "copy protected" faked CD-Audios
is not to buy and return them to your dealer as warnty claim, "it does not work".

In some contries is dealing around such a shameful copy protection
strictly forbidden by industry bought laws. (like in germany, bana republic)

But if you try a simple CDDA Player Application on the disc, it should run
fine playing the pure CDDA tracks, ignoring the CD-Rom tracks.

Such applications are:

CDDA Device Control Application on
kscd - makes your CD-Drive act as CD-Player, but the Audio signal from the device shoud be connected
to your sound CD-In device and the mixer (kmix) should open a audio channel...

Software CDDA Players are
amarok (much more than a CDDA Player!, IMHO Best Application for muci collectors and fans at all)
xine - does read the CDDA Track by software and plays it thru the sound device
vlc - does read the CDDA Track by software and plays it thru the sound device

and there are much more ...

Bye Jojo

Hi,
thanks for the info. I actually found a way to rip it and I posted the trick
to the same thread. I can't recall the command now, but it was one simple
line. (cdparanoia I think.)

I prefer to listen from files on the drive (not off CD) anyway and I use xmms
so things are working fine.

Ciao,
d
