    I am trying to copy a Copyrighted CD so that I can keep one in the house and one in the car, but using Nero it isn't having it!!

    Is there anyway around this?

    Can I convert to MP3 and then burn it that way for instance? (My car stereo plays MP3's)

    I did one recently for the wife so she could use the backup in the car. I used Windows Media Player 10 to rip to MP3 (with the Audio Quality settings set to Best Quality) then burnt a new CD from the MP3's. Slightly more convoluted but worked OK.

    The copy protection in a lot of CDs now is meant to prevent you ripping it to mp3. I have been using CloneCD for a while and it is great. It does not remove any copy protection but rather just creates an exact copy (including copy protection).

    because it is in my nature I would just like to add that most cd's (99%) are copyrighted :D

    however, a certain small percentage have got active copy protection mechanisms (which i think is the issue being discussed here), be it using a bad TOC, excessive bad sectors, or perhaps running a small viewer program when inserted into a pc, or even (gasp) installing a low level dll without your knowledge to intercept cd copying calls.

    Either way, a combination of clone cd, shift key, magic markers and nero should get the job done

    Thanks guys I will have a look.

    Does this sort of copyright protection mean I am prevented from copying the album to ITunes?

    checkup 'cloneCD'

    copies any cd. Even copies the copy protection...

    NB, just because a cd uses copy protection does not automaticually mean you are not legally allowed to copy it.
