The thought just occured to me... m. \ Comments Reply 1 of 4 stupider...likeafox Posts: 1,618member January 22, 2004 6:05PM It works no problem. The burned CD has no protection or DRM. It is exactly the same as any other burned CD. Reply 2 of 4 merovingian Posts: 436member January 22, 2004 6:08PM Quote:Originally posted by stupider...likeafox It works no problem.

I thought that they might have written in some copy protection thingo on the CD, like some "CD"s you can buy... m. \ \ Reply 3 of 4 ghost_user_name Posts: 22,667member January 22, 2004 6:43PM No, they are burned to the CD as plain audio with no restrictions.However, and this is important, if you re-rip the files from the audio CD back to the computer into a lossy format such as MP3 or AAC, the quality of the audio will degrade. That is simply the nature of MP3 and AAC (same as many others like WMA and OGG). So, whenever possible, just keep the original AAC files and listen to them unless you have no choice but to convert them to another format.

They don't allow you to take your laptop in there because you can do .aif and get an exact copy, which is illegal.that's the rule here at least, I wasn't sure, either way, it's a bummer, I wish I was allowed to use my laptop to make lesser quality copies, or if there was a way to do this with the iPod.
