[QUOTE=Chala;2489628]So AnyDVD will remove the protection on a CD? Then I don’t need AnyCD which I was trying the trail version? [/QUOTE]
I think you mean CloneCD instead of AnyCD.
Here is some Information from the slysoft site:
CloneCD is the perfect tool to make backup copies of your music and data CDs, regardless of copy protection.
But AnyDVD doesn’t just stop at DVDs. It also decrypts protected audio CDs to allow you to copy them. Features AnyCDDA: play, copy and rip protected audio CDs.
So if you use AnyDVD with EAC it should remove copy protection.
Now onto somethings I want you to try with EAC.
First change to this setting:
EAC/ Drive Options/ Extraction Method/ Burst mode
Then OK.This is so EAC will skip errors & maybe damage.
Also make these settings:
1.Database pulldown : Get CD information from Remote freedb
2.Action pulldown: …Detect Gaps
3.Action pulldown:Leave Out Gaps
4.Edit pulldown: Select all
5.Action/Copy Range: Uncompressed Then OK.
There is editing that can be done with Copy Range. I haven’t used those features.
This will give you a single .wav file.
Listen to it & see if it sounds like what you want.If it does it is ready to burn to an Audio CD.
1.Tools/Create CUE File…
2.Browse for a file. Select the .wav created with EAC.
3. TrackÂ Options . Select PreGap: 0Â Seconds
CD-TEXT: FileÂ Name or Custom Fill in as you want.
I’m not sure if this should be checked or not for your disc.
I don’t have a DJ mix like yours to test with.So it will be trial & error for you on this.
PreferÂ AccurateÂ AudioÂ TrackÂ Duration
Leave the others unchecked.
Some people like to check this one: AddÂ ToÂ WriteÂ QueueÂ WhenÂ Done
I prefer to get this after so I leave it unchecked.
Select OK.ImgBurn will ask where to save the New.cue .
Save it to your folder where the .wav is.
Now select Write mode. Source/ PleaseÂ selectÂ aÂ file… /Browse for a file .
Select the .cue you created with ImgBurn
Destination : Your DVD drive . Select the Write button .
[QUOTE=Chala;2489177]Cholla please let me ask you this, if i rip to wav no cue sheet, how do i then get it to MP3 format on my drive, sorry this is becoming quite confusing![/QUOTE]
EAC will convert the .wav to .mp3 .If you have the correct codec as I put in a previous post.
I’m not sure why you need a .mp3 since you are trying to create an Audio CD backup copy.
You will lose some quality with a .mp3.
Heres how though;
Make a copy of you .wav to a different folder.EAC changes the .wav to a .mp3 in this process.
If you don’t have a second copy you will no longer have the .wav.
With EAC Tools/ Compress WAVs…
Select the .wav you want to convert. Open.
EAC will ask where you want to save it.
Give it the name you want & save it in the same folder as the .wav.
SaveÂ asÂ type: External Compressor (*.mp3), Select Save
You should see a Command Prompt come up with lame.exe on it.
This will close when completed.
EAC will also have a WAV compression window. Just OK that .
You will now have a .mp3 of the disc.
