Info on Key2Audio protection

I have just discovered something really cool but "Strange". I recent purchased the Star Wars Ep II soundtrack in the UK by Sony. This disc has on the front "Will not play on PC/MAc" and is protected by Key2Audio by Sony. Yep the disc don't play on anything except my Hi-fi but Padus CDRWin5.0 WILL allow you to rip it at ANY bitrate without any problems!!

my setup is PIII 933, XP Pro, Teac CD540e reader and Sony CDRX -140 CDRW. My Computer will not read/display disc in drive when inserted, but run up CDRWin and you get a 3 session CD with session 1 with the CDDA trax, session2 with a CD-XA 1 trax and Session 3 as an unfinished session. All i did was open session 1, selected all the audio trax and then converted to MP3. They seem to work and sound great- I can now listen to them on my laptop and any where else I fancy (BTW Sony, not everyone has in car cd players!).

This is how it should be- you buy the disc and should be able to choose where to listen to it- not in HI-FIs only. Hope this info helps- could anyone please give me some feedback with other key2audio cds.

BTW: I wouldn't advise anyone to install this CDRWIN 5.0 as it's made by a company called Padus - NOT Goldenhawk. It's not the official "real" CDRWIN which is at version 4 I think.

I'm sticking with Goldenhawk.

padus still makes most of their money off of discjuggler, i'd think. cdrwin 5.0 is probably based on that engine, rather than the goldenhawk code

Key2audio

ghosthacker...



yeah,yeah i am a Padus employee... NOT


Just thought I post some possibly handy info. I found that CloneCD & Blindread could not read this disc. CDRWIN 5 also added a virtual cd drive to the "my computer" folder- quite useful for extracting iso images to. I must admit though, the program interface is crap

Again.. not plugging any particular program, just some info to share

hmmm, wonder why they would want to pay so much money for a protection when no one wants to by their stuff anyway
