    A very good proffesional XP site.

    Celine's latest CD, A Day Has Come, is one of a number of recent album releases that features the controversial copy-protection technology, which prevents it from being played or recorded in a PC.

    Last month, Celine Dion fans were warned that playing the CD on a PC could cause the machine to crash and possibly damage the firmware. However, it transpires that if the Canadian warbler's disc is placed in a new flat-screen iMac, the CD can't be removed or the computer restarted. The machine then has to be sent for repair, which means you've got to return it to Apple and ask its technicians to kindly remove the Celine Dion CD from the drive. According to Mac User magazine, an Apple dealer confirmed to the Campaign for Digital Rights that playing the disc in an iMac will result in the machine having to be sent for repair.
