its a new sort of copy protection for audio-tracks.
i didnt know how it works exactly but it changes the audio data, so that u cant play or rip the cd on a pc. but the cd is playable on a hifi cd-player.
doesn't anybody know how it works exactly.
could be of the reading mechanism of a pc-cdrom-drive.

I thought that was illegal. Don't the people who buy the product have the lawful right to make one backup copy of the media?

i found something about it:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The copy protection scheme most probably takes advantage of differences in specifications for RedBook CDs (audio) and YellowBook CDs (data). So far, copy protection schemes for CD audio have consisted of adding additional information to the table of contents area on a CD, or adding errors to the track that an audio CD player skips over but a CD-ROM reader has trouble with.

I'd be dubious that that is the only difference. If it was then I could still copy the songs using my hi-fi to tape or transfer the audio using the line out/in on the hifi/pc
