JOHN: The Yamaha CRW-F1 series can read ALL current AudioCD protected titles without any problems
The external CRW-F1DX (USB) I tested didn't read Avril Lavigne, Natalie Imbruglia & Celine Dion's last albums.
I tested it using a friend's laptop running Win Xp Pro w/o SP1 and its original firmware ( 1.0a ? ).
Don't know if it reads those albums ( all Key2 prot. ) with a newer firmware or upgrading Win Xp Pro with the Service Pack 1, though.
If you are that sure that it reads "ALL current AudioCD protected titles without any problems
" I can only think that we used a different configuration and I surely believe you
As I find the time ( and my friend..) I will do further tests that I'm more than glad to report here and share with you all.
By the way, I think the Yamaha CRW-F1 is one of the best burners ever and yes, Steiner83
I strongly suggest it.
I'm an old Plextor's "aficionado" but I must ( gladly ) admid that the F1 is simply amazing.
Steiner83: mdb175, I tried out the lin http://key2audio.aktualne.cz/ but without success. Anyhow, Im excited to find a more thourough guide to get around the protections. Thanks!
I already had that problem: now & then that link seems impossible to reach. I can only suggest to try to re-link, hopeing in better results.
That server is often down but I tested the link previewing my previous message...weird thing indeed. Sorry.
Hope this helps & have everybody a great New Year !
