I was now able to rip the CD using the following settings in the subchannel tab:
read subchannel data >unchecked
subchannel data in BCD format Ychecked
don't read subchannel data >checked
determine exact positions... >unchecked
The first Track in the resulting Copy was intact, however from track 3 on my players started spinning and freezing up my system. So i took my old Copy which i did in Clonecd on which every track except the first one were fine....
=> All Tracks now mpgized!
Mission accomplished, EMI CDs off my wishlist, I will download these albums instead, thanks very much!
It must be said that from the 2-CD set only the first CD is protected (from which every track was previously released) and the second lacks any protection at all (from which every track is previously unreleased!!!). Strange policy, if I may be so bold to place that remark....o_O <?
Many Thanks to you Boskin! Your efforts are much appreciated!
