I am trying to copy a duel music disk that I bought. I want to have a copy in the house and one in the car. but for some reason it won't let me copy it to a cd only a dvd. Is there any way to get the music on my computer so I can put it on a cd?
Thanks

hello

I dont know if you have tried this but windows media player 10..(which can be downloaded from microsoft) has a function that will rip music from CDs onto your hard drive...by default it will place it in my music then you can use nero, recordnow, or other burning programs to burn the CD.....also....another good program for ripping music is Musicmatch jukebox...a basic version can be downloaded from www.musicmatch.com, but the plus version is only about $25....if this doesn't help let me know

check out audiograbber, a high quality ripper that is completely free.

then use whatever burn program you like to get them on CD.

could you specify what you mean by "dual music disc" ?

I have tried to rip it with Media player and it won't do it, the function is not lit up. A duel disk is a cd on one side and a dvd on the other. The dvd side is not working on my computer and havn't tried it on my dvd player yet, but the cd side works but won't let me rip it, i can copy it but it will only let me burn to a dvd.

wow, I have not heard of this CD/DVD dual disc thing. give me specifics on what it is (title, artist, label, number if listed). I want to look this up and see what the deal is. that might also help to figure out what is going on with your burner.
I suspect this disc is actually a DVD on both sides, but I dont know for sure. or it could be some new copy protection scheme...

I believe it is a new thing that has come out. It is a cd/dvd of Rob Thomas (Something to Be) He is from Matchbox Twenty.

OK, did some research on this dual disc thing. seems they have found a way to prevent it from being ripped. I dont know how they do it, but I saw several complaints about it.
the record companies are now interfering with consumers legal right to create a backup copy of media they have purchased. it will be interesting to see how people react to this as they become more aware of it.
their reasoning, of course, is to stop people from sharing songs, etc. especially the file sharing networks.
but it does cause a problem for people who create a backup copy legitimately, for example myself. I create copies of my favorite CD's to carry in my car. that way if they get stolen or damaged from being in my car, I dont have to go out and buy the disc again. this is within our rights. another example is people loading songs from CD's they purchased onto their ipods or other MP3 players. now it seems they want us to buy the dual disc, and purchase the songs for download as well...there will be a backlash. :tazz:

the only thing I can think to try is to load the CD side into a CD/CDR drive (not a dvd), and see if you can rip it in that way, but I wouldnt be suprised if it doesnt work.

hmmm...I dont know. I suspect there are ways to bypass it, but it would probably involve doing a real time copy, through the analog playback and recording again....then having to rip that copy in, which wouldnt have the track info (artist, title, album, etc.)
I dont own any of these new dual discs, and I'm not going to go out of my way to try and crack it. just not my thing.

some programmer or hacker geek will find a way around it soon enough anyway.
dont forget the last effort against piracy, most prevalent on a celine dion CD. they put an extra data track on the CD, which if inserted in a computer disc drive, would render the drive useless. in some cases it even broke peoples computers completely.
they didnt think about the fact that many people use their PC as their primary stereo, to listen to music in a legitimate fashion. when PC's started breaking, people freaked out, and boycotts were called for. it all became a moot point once someone realized, and published on the net, how to defeat it. use a black sharpie on the outer edge of the disc, where the extra data track was printed.
millions spent on R&D, implementation, etc. defeated with a sharpie. ain't technology grand....

Technology is indeed grand, SCMS sneaked on to most recorders but then most companies sell models which can bypass this, though they don't make a fuss of advertising them

If the law allows for making back up copies, then they should either sell discs which let the purchaser do that, or put a big sticker on the label to say this disc cannot be copied.....yet.

i work with a guy and we talked about this new disc....he said he uses a program called "alcohol" ....i have knowledge of this program, but if you really want to rip the CD you could look into this program...this guy said he can rip this duel disc and he knows what he is talking about.....just a simple help....good luck

ah yes, alcohol 120%. I have heard of it, havent used it. just looked it up, it can create images, etc. but I didnt see anything about ripping.
again, dont have any of these dual discs, not gonna go out of my way to get one.
I fear this may be turning into some sort of "lets try to hack the dual disc" thread, which is not my intention, and Im sure geeks to go would frown upon that! :tazz:
