I was actually referring to the American double-continent as the underdeveloped area.

Ah, there are always ways around these CC controlled CDs and you can download certain software that does allow you to copy the CDs. It is of course illegal, but the CC CD's do take the piss, for example I cannot play them in my CD which set me back 200 quid yet sadly came out before CC became a reality - irratating as I am only a student. Thankfully, record companies tend to shy away from really realising CDs with this technology mostly because its only over the past two or three years when its become readily availble - combine this with the fact when you buy a CD player you expect it to last for several years, then the majority of people don't have the correct technology just yet.

It's also a contencious political issue, because its not actually illegal to put you CDs on to your own computer - Microsoft's Media Player isn't illegal is it, and its designed to allow you to copy your music on to other CDs. When it becomes illegal is when you share those files over the internet and/or download from file shareing systems. So therefore, CC is a pain if you're abiding by the law, which we like to think is most people, and which also means we're likely to resort to downloading illegal software because we've been unfairly treated. Evil corperations indeed.

In reply to:

They can't be played on the computer only.
You can record them on the audio cassettes.


I hate to go on and on about this, but why on earth would I copy my CD:s to cassettes? I never play cassettes. The only place I copy my CD:s is my iPod mini, and that's what I need a computer for. And as I said, it would probably be easy to bypass the cc anyway. But it's just that they're not proper CD:s. You better read this. ThinWhiteDuke87 posted this on the "copy controlled" -thread in the Views and Questions.

I can only say, we have very different views on this issue...

In reply to:

my guess would be simply because you are surrounded by so many other countries and copying would too easy for the spread of illeagal CDs


I don't think that could be the reason, because I think the biggest thing they're trying to stop with the cc is the music spreading over the internet... I don't really know.

Re: Bought David Live and Stage Today! new [re: Sysiyo]  

Sysyo, just to complement your information, the MP3 format employs a LOSSY COMPRESSION ALGORITHM, which means it discards sounds that the human ear can't hear - in practice it discards a little more. It also discards "masked" sounds, like ruffling leaves during an explosion. MD (mini-disc) and DCC (Digital Compact Cassette, if it still exists) also employ lossy algorithms, though not necessarily the same. That's why, strictly speaking, mp3 is never going to sound as good as a regular CD.

On the other hand, a LOSSLESS compression algorithm would only compress the digital information obtained from the original sound and restore it in full after decompression.

You say a CD does not replicate all the sounds vinyl can store. That may be true, but it's an intrinsic limitation of the sampling rate employed by CDs. It has nothing to do with compression, which is not used here.

Why do you want to copy the original CD?

Re: Bought David Live and Stage Today! new [re: Claude]  

As LG said she likes to load the songs onto her iPOD, others like to make a copy of the cd to use in the car or when they go on holiday, so that the original doesn't get damaged or stolen.

Emilio, thanks for clearing that up.

On a completely unrelated note, is it just me or is Claude being even more dense than usually these days?

Re: Bought David Live and Stage Today! new [re: pablopicasso]  

On STAGE, are the tracks presented as a full concert or are the fades still present?

On DAVID LIVE, are the fades into each album side seamless or spotty (like the Rykodisc versions)?

Thank You
