The Audio Side of this CD Does Not Conform to CD Specifications

by Thomas Beutel

I haven’t bought a CD in a while – I’m buying my music on iTunes these days. But yesterday I picked up Weird Al’s Straight Outta Lynwood. It’s a Sony BMG dual disc. And in two places it says this:The audio side of this CD does not conform to CD Specifications and therefore not all DVD and CD players will play the audio side of this disc.Amazing!Imagine buying other products that said this…This Windows software does not conform to Windows specifications and therefore not all Windows computers will run this software.-or-This gasoline does not conform to federal gasoline specifications and therefore it your car may not run with it.I must admit, Sony BMG has balls to take your money for something that “may not play”.
