I am currently ripping Push the Button as I browse the forum. I read on the case that it has copy protection and when I put it into the DVD-ROM (Compaq Evo N800C with Toshiba Combo CD/RW and DVD-ROM can't remember the drive type), the disc spun up and told me it would need to update some files to play. I wasn't up for that so I tried to browse the CD but of course you cannot see the audio files.
I thought I was screwed, but then I just used my good old Musicmatch Jukebox 8.1 and it saw the disc, saw the tracks and started to play them. When I ripped them with MMJB at 192kBps, the tracks sound great and there seems to be no glitches or high frequency problems (aside from those which The Chemical Brothers intended).
I have had awesome success with this method - it has never failed. I know that it doesn't give true CD Audio but for a lot of people, surely the quality is good enough.
Am I just lucky or is this a feature of MMJB that people have not fully explored? I hope that you experts can give some insight and maybe some people who are as forgiving on the sound quality as I am, might find this a useful tip.
