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 :
1) suggestions on why cdparanoia is not paranoia at all?
2) 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)
3) other suggestions ?
