I am completely stumped as to what to do. I have the CD “Sound Advice” by the Shapeshifters. It’s an import from the UK, but it does have a sticker that says its made in Hong Kong. I pop the CD in and autorun starts the Player.exe file. There is actually an option to save media to my computer but I get a fatal error. EMI has not responded to any requests, so I’m trying to get the files myself.
Now, I am lacking on the terminology so I may be missing the answer if it’s right in front of me, but here are my symptoms:
-I can’t play the tracks in Windows Explorer or via WMP.
-The tracks play fine through the program.
-I can see and grab the tracks via EAC (.95 b3) and Audiograbber, but the tracks sound like they’re skipping. There are no gaps or clicks–it’s just garbled. It plays 1/2 second clips of the songs out of order.
-I have Alcohol120%, but I don’t know what to do with it.
-Cluny (is that right?) told me that Cactus 4.0 is protecting the CD.
Nothing I’ve tried has worked. I don’t know what this C2/C1 stuff is that people are discussing, nor do I know what ASPI is. Help!
