Default How'd it do this?

My son recently "borrowed" my Lee Ann Womack CD. I could tell because I
found it in my room, but not where I'd left it. So I burned a copy (of just
the audio session) and left it for him with a note saying to please ask me
before taking my stuff.

Today, I found the CD-R in the family room and popped it into the XP box
next to me. A little while later, I looked over, and there was a picture of
the CD cover, a list of all track times and names, and a link to buy it from

Now, I know from past experience that CD software cannot locate a CD in the
CDDB unless it is reading the pressed one. But WMP 10 not only found it
based on the CDR copy, but with a very different image. The one I purchased
had a data session with a video and a screen saver.

This is spooky. All it had to go on was the track content. The
lead-in/lead-out's were probably even different.

It's played all the way through, and no RIAA SWAT team yet...
