Game Over used our newssubmit to tell us how he managed to rip a CD that is copy protected with the latest audio CD copy protection:

Anyone with a Plextor drive & Plextor manager 2000 knows this is commonplace…(when using the MVP). Cool. I already wired my Plextor 1210s to go from the pins closest to the scsi connector to the SPIDF in on my Soundblaster Live! card in case I needed to digitally copy a cd in real-time - looks like I won’t have to. Far-out!

The Link was dead!!! How helps me out ??? Want to check this baby! :c

It let’s the Pc see the Cd-A track as a Wave file. Copy & paste this entire url in your browsers address bar & you will see many places to read about & obtain this vxd. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&q=CDFS.VXD+

  1. ( to the guy who wanted to use SPDIF, stvastva ) : SB Live! resamples everything to 48 kHz ! So your CD will be resampled from 44.1 kHz to 48 kHz and then back to 44.1 kHz ( unless you want to save it as 48 kHz, but you probably don’t ). Not exactly an exact copy … 2. CDFS.VXD grabs the data exactly the same way than Audiograbber, Audiocatalyst, WinDAC or any other CD grabber. 3. There are no details provided about what CD was used, what “normal” CD grabber was used and how it failed… Complete bull, if you ask me.

In spain, this summer it has appeared a batch of protectec cds (two titles, in fact), and none of them could be read by a PC. The only thing you could see was a data track, but it had the same length that the first audio track, the rest simply didn’t appear. The only way to copy it was using Audiocatalyst, nor EAC, nor Audiograbber, nor WinDAC, nor cd’n’go… I don’t really know very much about extracting audio, but after that, “CDFS.VXD grabs the data exactly the same way than Audiograbber, Audiocatalyst, WinDAC or any other CD grabber”, looks at least unreliable, simply because Audiocatalyst did it in some different way, and it worked for that


#17

It didn’t work! :frowning: I get Blue Screen of death when I try to go inside the cd!!!

> The only way to copy it was using Audiocatalyst, > nor EAC, nor Audiograbber, nor WinDAC, nor cd’n’go… AudioCatalyst uses the AudioGrabber extraction engine. Both use simple Burst Mode to grab the audio. If AudioCatalyst is able to read the tracks, then so is at least AudioGrabber and probably every other ripper that uses Burst Copy Mode (WinDAC, CDFS, …) If you want to read more about the technical issues of the new SafeAudio protection and how to copy read those links: - http://www.ttrtech.com/maintech2.htm - http://www.heise.de/ct/01/15/016/ - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eac/message/8586 - http://groups.yahoo.com/group/eac/message/8594 - http://www.newscientist.com/news/news.jsp?id=ns9999998

Just downloaded an mp3 that sounded like every 1/2 second was chopped up, so it just sped through the song like a dvd movie on fast forward. When I burned it in Roxio to .wav audio cd, it had the same effect. :frowning: BUT, if I converted it to .wav before I burned it (I used Winamp to convert it) then burned that directly to cd in Roxio, it sounds fine. :slight_smile: At that point, I converted it back to .mp3 and that one sounds fine too. Go figure. :4

That cdfs.vxd file caused my system to reboot whenever any activity was sent to my CD-ROM (Memorex CD-362E) with an audio cd in the drive and locked my system when I tried the same in my burner (old Mitsumi CR-4801te). Just my experience with it, hope it works better in other peoples’ systems.
