    copy protected audio CDs prevent users from ripping the files by installing small applications when the CD is inserted. Disabling the autoplay feature easily solves this problem. When you insert a CD, you can hold down shift, which will disable it for the disk. To permanently disable autoplay, do the following:

    1. Go to Start->Run->gpedit.msc
    2. Computer Config -> Administrative Template -> System
    3. Double clik Turn off Autoplay
    4. Enable it.

    I've ripped several copy protected CDs such as the new Beastie Boys and Green Day albums, with no problems.

    I was able to rip/copy a couple of cds after turning off the autoplay, however I have several more that still won't cooperate. Any further suggestions/software would be greatly appreciated.
