I hate DRM but I don't let that stop me!
Authored by: steresi on May 09, '06 04:45:57PM

I'm not sure how many tunes I've purchased... every now and then I burn a CD of everything I've bought lately and then copy it back into the computer as MP3 and erase or archive the originals. 192kbps MP3 is high enough quality for me, and thankfully DRM-free!

CD-Burning-Emulation

Isn't there any programm which emulates a CD-burner by in fact writing to an iso-image or a -dmg-file? Just in case that you don't have any CD-R available, then it should be possible to "burn" somehow an Audio-CD-image and grab it afterwards to mp3 from this image. This should even be scriptable...

You can use an application called Audio Hijack to record the sound of any program on your computer. I have used that on the about 20 songs I have bought from there because I cannot play them in my DJ software (and yes, I realise that the quality is not enough but if you cannot find it elsewhere...).

D'accord! Burning Audio CDs for backup purpose and converting to mp3 for my convenience (as long as non-iPod devices [mp3-cd players, my DVD, etc...] won't play them). CD-RWs work fine too if one doesn't like "wasting" CD-Rs...
