Musicmatch question

Can someone tell me how to defeat the copy protection that Musicmatch uses? When I download an album, I make one CD for the car, pick a few songs for a "favorites" CD and a few for my wife's favorites and then your done. No more copies can be made. They should at least allow five copies of a song. I have a bunch of stuff that I can only listen to on my desktop, despite having paid for it. Help a feller out here.

I hate Musicmatch. I never use it. If I download off Napster or something, I go through "my music" folder in my computer. I play, download and burn through mediaplayer. Once its in my computer it never goes away. Check to see if your stuff is in your hard drive. Thats what I do anyway. Good luck.

once you make the cd, all you have to do is make copies of the cd or rip the cd into mp3s and then use a program to burn the mp3s back to a cd as a audio cd file.

What I download from Musicmatch is an MP3. The MP3s are on my hard drive. The problem is using them afterwards. So if I burn a CD off the MP3s that is in wave file format and then rip them back to MP3s, all is good after that?

Should be. I would burn it into an audio format so your cd player can play them.

If you burn mp3's to a cd then the CD in most cases is considered a "data" CD. If you want to play the songs in a standard CD player, then the mp3's need to be converted to .wav format. When converting mp3's to wav, I use a program called DbPowerAmp Music Converter found here...

http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm

It is one of the fastest and most reliable converter out there.

When I get the wav files, I burn them to CD using Nero found here...

http://www.nero.com/us/Nero_Burning_ROM6.html

Hope that helps. You can use any program you want, but I found this method best for me.

Use Nero or Roxio... Roxio had a prog to rip to MP3 from audio also. I actually use both, but prefer Roxio to Nero. Just my .02

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!
