This queston may seem odd, but i'll give it a try anyway.
When successfully created a "good" image (no bad sectors/dummy files) off a protected audio cd through CloneCD is it then a great matter what program i use to extract the tracks from the image? I've only used CdMage so far but the result is tracks filled with pops/skips. Can these be filtered by another application or is the image beyond salvation from the start?
I would also appreciate if anyone would tell me how to extract tracks from an image in EAC (mentioned in earlier posts, but not exactly how to do it).
My last thought concerns whether CloneCD really is needed if a drive (ie Plextor) can read the protection fully, wouldn't it then be possible to rip directly through EAC?
