Does the packaging explicitly say "this CD will only work in Windows" or have similar notes on it? Macs aren't supported in the anti-piracy CDs produced by sony (and other Japanese groups) at least, so that's an easy sign that you have a copy-protected CD. Also, if you can't open up the CD using Winamp version <5.0 in Windows or copy the tracks using CD burning software like Nero or Roxio, the CD's definitely copy-protected. - -Garrett -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v220.127.116.11 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFEkeph6CkrZkzMC68RArI2AJ9wunFhhH4Mk71NsZtvEOLeIl1U9ACfZaaq +ClMaDnPyShA0m3jSAe3J6s= =L9nj -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
