Default CD labelling?

Hi,
My Rebirth CD & free DVD by J Lo has "COPY PROTECTED & PRE-RIPPED FOR PC" printed on the packaging.

What does pre-ripped for PC mean?
Does copy protected cause any issues?

At a guess, it's one of those that has one session with the music on for your CD player, and another session for the PC with MP3s. I think if you disable auto-insert-notification or whatever it's called these days for the drive, you will be able to choose whichever you want to see.

I thought you were less than young Andrew Good to see you keeping up with the young uns

I'm confused now. He doesn't like Norah Jones but he wants to make sure that he isn't left without J-Lo?

Hi,
I'm still young at heart.

The PC finds 70Mb of data but no sound tracks.
It appears to force the PC to use music player to extract the music data.

If there are MP3 or other compressed music files then WinExplorer cannot see them.

Is there a way to un-hide the music files? Or is that what copy protection is all about?

Ah OK it's one of those discs with the build in media player then. Did you turn off auto-insert-notification? If you haven't it may be too late and the disc has already installed some software.

I hate these kinds of things, pointless in the long run and hassle to the consumer.
