For audio cds, it depends on whether the problematic stuff is due to deliberate drm or whether it is due to disc damage (ie. scratches, etc…).
As an isolated case of deliberate drm, LiteOn drives seem to be able to handle some audio cds with “cactus data shield” drm.
This particular variety of drm used deliberate bad sectors, which were originally meant to trip up then-current computer cd/dvd drives circa early->mid 2000s, but would otherwise play + sound fine on standalone audio cd players. (The latter is debatable).
I don’t know much about LiteOn’s implementation details, but somehow it appears the cd section of LiteOn drives since the late-2000s, was hardcoded to recognize this type of deliberate bad sectors drm on audio cds with cactus data shield.
My Samsung and LG drives have a harder time dealing with these same audio cds encoded with cactus data shield.
