Hi, I was wonering if anyone else has tried to rip this CD in MP3 format. It has propietary software that pops up whenever the CD is placed in the disc drive. I bypassed this by holding the "shift" key and made a back up of the disc successfully, but I want to rip the disc in mp3 format to play on my mp3 player. The proprietary software only allows me to rip in WMA format, which I don't really care for. I encountered a similar problem when I backed up Velvet Revolver's "Contraband" CD, but I worked around it and was able to rip and back up that CD. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it.
