8/28    I copied an audio CD with a CD drive on a PC, and the duplicate CD can
        only play in a regular CD player but not in a DVD player.  The DVD
        player doesn't recognize the CD.  Is this a common problem?  (I have
        consent from the author of the CD to make copies.)  -- yuen
        \_ Yes, many DVD players do not support CD-R/RWs. I believe only
           Toshiba or Sony has comprehensive support of all disc formats
           across their entire line of players.
           \_ No, but Pioneer does. Only the high-end Sony 7700 can say
              this in their current line. --dim (Sony owner)
               \_ The Sony 7000 supports CD-R, too. - another :) sony owner.
        \_ most dvd players can't play CD-Rs but most CAN play CDRWs.  you can
           check the dvd player.  the pioneer 525 is one that has two lasers
           so that it can play your CDRs as well.  most dvd players only have
           one laser to read DVDs and it cannot read CDRs. -uctt
           \_ So what's the format of audio CD's from music stores called?  And
              that format only requires one laser beam to play?
              \_ They both require one laser beam; just different ones.

7/10    My girlfriend downloaded music from iTunes onto another computer,
        which we do not have access to anymore. Apple has record of the
        purchases through the "Purchase History" option, but their policy
        is that you can only download once. I never realized that. WTF?!
        Why would they have such a policy when they clearly know what she
        bought? Has anyone sued them over this? We have so many songs in

8/11    Aside from physically breaking a CD, what's the easiest way to make
        it permanently unreadable?
        \_ If you have a secure shredder service, they usually handle CDs as
           well.
        \_ Get a screwdriver, scratch the top of the CD.  It's not that much
           more work than writing with a pen.  Remember, data on CD is near

6/2     I own a 1999 Taurus. I would like to replace the OEM in-dash
        cassette deck with a CD player that won't cost more than say $120 and
        which will have a "detacheable face". How likely is my car to be broken
        into if I do it?
        \_ The likelihood of your fancy shmancy CD player getting stolen
           10-15 years ago would be the same as those expensive fancy shmancy

3/15    Hey motd -- I'm pretty clueless about audio stuff: I have a handful
        of CD's that I'd like to rip into decent quality MP3's.  Can anybody
        recommend a reasonable freeware software package for win2k to help
        me with this?  Any help would be much appreciated.    TIA!        -mice

           it looks like most of them are unrated... I use iTunes on my Mac.

1/19    The CD player in my car is skipping everytime i hit a bump even a
        a tiny one.  It's really annoying, and I want to get it fixed,
        does anyone know of a good place to have this done?  It might
        just need to be cleaned, but I'm not sure how to do that with the
        slot type player.  Any suggestions?  --jwm
        \_ Is your CD player designed to handle vibrations (by buffering data)?

12/22   I purchased an album through iTunes on my Mac (OS 10.4 completely
        up to date). I then burned that to a CDR using iTunes. I can play
        that CDR on my home stereo (DVD player), an old boombox (CD only),
        and the computers. I cannot play it in my car stereo (BMW stock).
        If I take that CDR and rip it on my PC using WMP to Windows Media
        Format (Lossless) and then burn *that* to a CDR (identical brand)

4/1     I'd like to play my favorite EA game on the laptop. However, I
        don't have a CD player for my laptop and I'm wondering if it
        is possible to mount the CD on my desktop and access it via
        wireless. I know that EA has really weird CD protection
        schemes, that's why I'm wondering if anyone has successfully
        done this. -ok thx
