Hello, I’m new to this forum, so I apologize in advance if this thread is in the wrong section, or has already been discussed. I poked around for a while, but couldn’t find the answer I was looking for. Anyway, I have a “copy protected” audio cd that I want to make a back up of. I read somewhere on this forum that ISO buster will do the trick. I downloaded it, but can’t figure out how to convert the tracks (which are tao files) into wav files. When I right click to save, there is an option to convert to wav files, but it can’t be selected. I tried the other options to extract the files, but they were not recognized by Nero. Can someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong, or am I using the wrong software program all together. Thanks.
As a suggestion, you could try audiograbber, its free and can deal with most protections.http://www.audiograbber.com-us.net/download.html Otherwise, you could use a program such as Alcohol 120% which has a free 30 day trial.http://trial.alcohol-soft.com/en/

TAO is the recording method (Track At Once) the files should already be in WAV format which I believe is standard CD audio format.
thanks for the info!!!
