It's an interesting story about an AUDIO CD with K2Audio, a DVD Toshiba SD-m1502



and, of course, CLONECD

Hi all. I have some information to comment with you:

First of all, a friend of mine, lent me the EPISODE 2 OSB protected with Key2Audio. It was my first time trying to defeat an audio"protection" so i was very nervous

Buah, the protection is or very good or shit. Why do i say this? Because the first time i inserted the CD in my TOSHIBA SD-M1502, i could play all the songs perfectly and CLONECD detected it as a MULTISESION DISK. This is the information CloneCD showed (its in spanish, sorry, but you can difference the two sessions easyly):

Ok, the CD was identified, and I tried to make an image to burn it. Well, i could make the image reading both subchannels and the others options dismarked. Then i wrote it with NON-REPAIR SUBCHANNEL and Now i have a PERFECT copy of the disk, but all that glitters isn't gold and here comes my "TRUE TROUBLE":

I ejected the ORIGINAL CD and I introduced another time. This time the CD WASN'T IDENTIFIED as MULTISSESION DISK, and I COULDN'T play any song. When I tried to make an image with CloneCD, DUMMY FILES, a lot of them, began to appear and the CD was read very fast (like it wasn' being read the audio tracks). Inmediately i stopped the reading and ejected the CD.

Normally, I hadn't introduced the CD another time, but the fortune or just my impatience, make me to do it. Strangely, this time the CD was recognized as the FIRST TIME and i Could make the image PERFECT.

Well, the question is: Why does the CD is reconized sometimes and sometimes is PROTECTED?? What such a protection is this KEY2Audio??

Anyway, I have my Copy than has been recognized four times, like MULTISSESIOn (so i suppose the x-files-behaviour it's just with originals).

Thx for reading this "book" but i wanted to tell you...

PS: My LG just CAN'T read the ORIGINAL CD. It starts to read, but it can recognize the CD. Fortunatelly, i have my Toshi :slight_smile:
