I've experience 2 CD's that wouldn't play on my home player. They must have been part of this *yet another failed attempt at copyright protecting CD's*.
They were Aerosmith's Just Push Play and the Gorillaz self-titled album. They ripped just fine :D

I agree - as long as the CD plays back without distortion on a home player, there will be workarounds to convert these tracks to mp3.

Easy - just play it in analog (Play it from your stereo) into the Line In on your 'puter and then just record the Line In data on to the HDD...
I just dunno if VBR would work with that, though......

oh who cares? in a few months someone will find a crack, and everyone except the record company will be happy.

Knowing the past and present stupidity of the recording and film industries, the protecion is probably aimed at the Xing encoder :D:D:D

My Gorillaz CD played just fine in my player.

My player is just a piece of fuck though. It can hardly play those 2 CD's at all... I have to fuck with the thing like 20 times to make it finally start playing the CD.
For Just Push Play I finally gave up and burnt a copy of it.
Imagine that, burning copies of my own damn CD's now!
