I just bought the new Kraftwerk album and the first thing I wanted to do was to rip it to my iPod. (No I couldn't buy it at the Music Store since I live in Europe). Unfotunately they use some stupid copy protection so it was not possible. I made sure it wasn't protected before I bought it, but I guess I've got screwed. Since it's possible to play it on a Mac I guess it must be possible to write a program that scans the sound buffer as the CD plays and encode it to AAC or mp3. Anyone knows if such a program exists?
