>favorite group about to release new cd
>good incentives to buy physical copy
>no way to rip it to my phone
>never buy digital music
how do i solve this? i want to buy it but i want to be able to use it as well do they even sell optical drives anymore?
i dont have an optical drive i wont even be able to play it unless i can find one for sale someplace but out dated tech like that its questionable i usually wouldn't even be buying the cd but they have their own label so the artist keeps most of the money i pay for it
>unless i can find one for sale someplace but out dated tech like that its questionable
the bait, it hurts
>but out dated tech like that its questionable
why do people think this? older tech is actually more likely to last a long time than buying brand new because the duds have already long since died, optical drives rarely fail and when they do they're trashy vomit box drives anyway
also stop being a fucking tech hipster, optical media and drives are still manufactured and won't be going anywhere for a long time, they've just been pushed into a more niche market
Are you serious? go to the nearest hardware store and ask for a disc reader/writer, they sell DVD+CD readers/writers for like $20 and they will keep selling them for decades to come, BluRay drives are still too expensive, same with BD-ROMs. Come back later when you have the disc reader and ask in >>>/g/sqt how to rip your songs.
