I have a Japanese cd called “Ayumi Hamasaki - Cyber Trance Presents Ayu Trance 2” and i can’t seem to burn it properly. i have ended up with 4 coasters already, and my burner is a TDK 401248X from Australia. I have used Clony, and it has detected the cd as being a Key2Audio protected, but i know it is not since Key2Audio cds can’t be played on a computer and i have played it on my pc before. When i put the cd in my AOpen 1640Pro DVD drive it detects it as being unprotected, but i am certain it is protected. There is 1 ring around the very centre, and a ring on the outer edge where the data ends. The CD is made by Avex Trax. Any help?
Also, i have tried ripping the tracks to my pc, but that does not seem to work properly. My drive i excellent at audio extraction, but i am unable to extract the first track! Also, each track after 1 (ie 2,3,4 etc) seems to contain little crackles in them from time to time which are not part of the composition. I have used various programs, Easy CDDA Extractor, Nero, TDK Digital Mix Master.
Any Advice out there??
UPDATE!!..The cd is now being detected as a CD Extra.
