I have obtained an anime music CD and it has the Avex protection . I tried using blindwrtie in DAO PW mode with no luck. I'm using the Plextor 24/10/40A. I'm wondering if there is a setting or some other program which can get through it.
Have you tried other software? Any other ripping programs?
I have not seen much failure with clonecd and/or audiocatalyst.
