Simply put, the license belongs to the library and they grant you the right to listen to the CD on a short-term basis, not make your own copies of it. Thus, if it doesn't work there isn't much to it as there should have been no expectation to begin with. Also, the license issue exists in the first place because some people will borrow/rent CDs and DVDs, copy the content, and keep it long after they return the original media. That falls under the realm of piracy, and is something they want to prevent. Thus, there are limitations that would not be there if everyone were honest and law-abiding. It would be nice if that weren't the case, but not much can be done.
P.S. DVD Shrink is officially outlawed in several countries due to its abilities to circumvent copy protection, a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, among others. In cases where it's needed, something wrong.
When I get a book on CD from my public library, I rip it to my work laptop. I then copy the files to my flash drive and take them home. I transfer the files from my flash drive to my home pc. It takes up the right amount of space on my hard drive, but when I try to play it from my home PC it tells me I need a license.
This is stuff from the public library, why can't I transfer it from my work laptop to my home pc?
Is there any way to release the license requirement with software, like DVD Shrink does with DVDs?
How do I avaiod having to bring home all these library CD's to load directly on my home PC ?
