CD Protection For Dummies

from the so-simple dept

Alexis Agahi writes “I don’t know if it is really efficient, but it seems that Cactus Data Shield 100/200 and KeyAudio CD protection can be avoided with marker pens and electrical tape applied the edge of the CD… Funny to see that protection can often be circumvented with a cheap technique. But let’s face it, having a collection of CD with magnetic tape stick on the borders is not very glorious.” This was mentioned in a comment on a post yesterday, but figured it was worth posting to the site. I wonder how well it actually works. I remember when CDs first came out, hearing that you could improve their sound quality with a green magic marker… which always sounded like an urban myth.
