I’m trying to rip a cactus 200.0.4 3.0 build16c audio cd with my PX-40TS (old version, firmware <1.10).
When i use EAC, it can identify the first 3 to 9 (it depends from time to time (eject, insert again) , if someone understands how that’s possible?) tracks as audio tracks , so i was able to get a clean wav for them.
Using manual toc detection seems to hang (also with non protected CD’s).
In plextools, the single session option is disable :(.
I’ve also got a linux machine at my disposal , with a cheap , no brand cdrom (50 speed, so reasonably modern) . If i use cdparanoia, i’m able to extract the remaining tracks (doesn’t seem to be bothered at all by illegal tocs). Unfortunatly , there is a clicking sound every 20s or so , which is kinda odd since cdparanoia was especially created to avoid clicks (actually it seems eac was inspired on cdparanoia)
My questions :
- suggestions on why cdparanoia is not paranoia at all?
- is there a way to feed eac with a toc generated by an external program ? This seems to my like an easy way to defeat these kind of copy protections (just get your hands on the appropriate toc and you 're on your way)
- other suggestions ?
