Does 5.35 play Copy Control discs?

Question: Does Winamp 5.35 play copy control discs?

I've always been able to play copy control discs on older versions.

But on 5.35, there's no way I can do it.

My question is about playing discs, not other things. Thanks.

My system:

OS:
Windows 98SE

Hardware:
Asus X-series mainboard
Celeron 1.8 chip
Kingston DDR RAM; 1 gig
Audiotrak Maya soundcard
Sony 52x CD-ROM

yeah, it should, just don't let the cd install any stuff on your system(like rootkits etc)

if it really doesn't work, get a felt pen(whiteboard marker is the best because it rubs off easily) and carefully draw a line on the last track of the cd(usually its visible) so your cdrom can't read it. voila anti copy protection.

I personally stopped purchasing copy protected disks a long time ago and I suggest to everyone else to do the same.

i'd rather go to jail for piracy then have my rights forcefully removed by greedy companies.

Thanks.

No need for the felt pen thing.

I can still rip Copy Control discs if I need to (with other softwares).

I'm just wondering if anybody else noticed this non-CCCD-friendly anomaly of version 5.35.

Versions 5.34 and older play everything.

But on the plus side, 5.35 does sound better (to me) than 5.34. (Sonic Engine improvement, perhaps?)
