How to rip Copy Controlled CDs?
I bought my first "Copy Controlled" CD the other day. It seems record companies are starting to do this with a lot of their releases these days. If I put it in my PC, it recognises it, but doesn't recognise that there's music on it and won't convert it to mp3, 'cause it thinks there's no music on it it.
So how do I get this CD on to an Ipod? Does anyone know of any patches? I haven't bought an Ipod yet but I'm in the process of ripping all my CD's in anticipation of buying one. But if all future CD releases end up with this "Copy Controlled" protection on it, then there's no way I'm buying an Ipod, no matter how good they may be.

Here is the way:
1. Download CloneCD
2. Install
3. Choose Copy CD
4. Choose Audio CD
5. Use the copy result CD-R, then rip from this CD-R (the result will remove the protection).
Thanks to Herman Tjahja and iPodLounge Forum for the tips.
