XTC Bonus discs un co-operative

Post by shah » 23 Nov 2019, 16:44

I just bought the updated XTC 5.1 surround sound cd's for Black Sea (with fantastic Stranglers circa 1980 wannabee song "rocket from a bottle') and they come with bonus discs full of goodies as you can imagine.

Downloaded the main disc to itunes via my trusted old Mac Book Pro...via the cd/dvd slot....but neither bonus discs 'take'? They won't download, nor stay in after a few whirls and gurgles....what gives? Any solutions? I partly got the damn things for the instrumental versions on those discs so I'm a mite miffed....any gearheads help me here?

Cheers,

It's probably because the bonus discs are Blu Rays. So unless you have a BluRay drive they won't be read. And even if you did you'd likely need some proper software... if it is at all possible to rip bluray audio...

Uh huh. That makes total sense, Dom. I am officially a donkey.
No other way of getting them into my itunes then?

No... you need a bluray disc drive and something like this:
