I’ve just gotten a copy of Youthanasia (Remixed & Remastered) by Megadeth, which (in its EU form, anyway) comes with Cactus Data Shield 200 v5.01.000.
I’ve ripped a number of CDS200 discs before with absolutely no trouble at all, but this one is causing a bit of trouble. For the most part everything works fine, but in some tracks there are audible clicks. The clicks appear on my ripped tracks, on the tracks as they are played through Winamp from each of my CD drives and on one of my standalone CD players, but do not appear in two of my other standalones.
I’ve tried ripping in EAC in both Secure mode (which takes roughly half an hour per track and spits out lots of suspicious positions) and burst mode, but the glitches appear identical in both. I’ve tried a Lite-On LTR-52327S, a Pioneer DVR-110D and a Lite-On SOHW-812S.
Is there something that will work to rip these tracks without glitches?
