The new Hives CD btw. My computer won't read it and I can't rip it. The bottom of the CD is black instead of the usual silvery shinyness so would this be a problem? It's not a problem with my computer because I ripped Elect The Dead with no problems 5 minutes ago. Can anyone help me with this?

I think the CD was tested before they sell it. Maybe its some kind of security. Does the CD work in an ordinary CD player?

Black-bottoms usually mean copy protection. Just torrent the album, and you can jstify it since you already bought it.
