Hi Larry, sorry for the delay in replying.
By EAC--I meant the freeware program that is excellent in ripping audio.
I suppose that since this SACD format is new and probably the discs have some sort of lame copy protection on the standard side, it's hard for many drives to be able to recognize them properly. You can thank LiteON for making their new DVDRW drives particularly good in reading copy-protected CDs. Your DVD-ROM obviously is choking on these discs...
