Cd Audio Fault

#1

Hello
I have some CDs with audio written to BASF EMTEC discs.
These have become corrupted. The audio plays, but has a constant almost cyclical noise embeded in the audio.
The disks have many errors, but the audio is continuous without any mutes or glitches.

Here is a sample

Can anyone identify what the cause might and how it might be corrected. I have tried Exact Audio copy to try and extract clean audio, but with no success.

When I listened, I heard lots of mutes and glitches :confused:

I also viewed the raw WAV file with a hex editor and could see many mutes/holds in the data.

Have you tried listening to these in multiple CD audio players? You might also try ripping at the slowest possible speed and with various drives/software.
