I am trying to listen to my newly purchased CD (Garbage - Bleed like me, i you must know).. and i cant!

When i put it in the CD drive it Autoplays a screen were the only option is to watch a video. I try to open the files manually but there are no "music" files in it.

Whats going on? Is this the revenge of the recording companies?

Is there anyway around it? Can i listen to my legally purchaseed CD when i and where i want to?

Disable autoplay on your CD drive and open windows media player, for example. Then play the CD through there.

If that doesn't work then send me the album as I want it as well. I really like 'Why Don't You Love Me'.  Wink

The CD might have a anti-copy protector on it. I've had that on a few CD's. I've even had one where, when I put the CD in, it installed a program on my PC so I couldn't use my CD burner anymore!  Angry

They're allowed to do that?  Wow! Would such a thing not be highly questionable legally?

And the record company clowns wonder why people go out and download the music instead of fucking around with CDs at $12 a pop.

I can't imagine that its legal, since they are installing a program on your PC without you giving consent or to your knowledge.

I've only had that with one CD...Intoxicated by Gracia from BMG records.

I had that with the Indiana Jones DVD's as well.

cheers,
Patrick

I'll garantee there's an EULA somewhere...

I brought the same album today. Enjoying it a lot.

Had now problems putting it in my PC, it just came up with a little window asking what I wanted to do with it (play, rip, copy etc). Maybe the UK version is different.

You could try holding down shift while you put the CD in. It disables autorun for you.
