I have a copy of Mogwai: Government Commissions (Promo CD) and I’m finding it impossible to play or rip the CD on my computer. I know the CD isn’t defective as I can play it on a regular CD player, but none of my CD-ROM drives can do anything with it.
I’ve found that none of the copy protection detection programs listed find anything, so I’m a bit stumped on how to deal with it. If it helps any, the inside CD has “Sonopress” listed on it, which indicates Cactus Data Shield but I’m not sure. Also, the CD, when read through Explorer, just lists like any of my other non-protected CDs.
I’ve had the most success with a Lite-On 48246S and a Mitsumi FX240S as these drives can actually detect the track listings, but none of my other drives, (including a NEC SCSI 32x, Teac 32x IDE and 24x IDE, Matsushita DVD/CDRW) can even read it.
With the Liteon drive, EAC cannot detect a matching read command, but it detects with the Mitsumi as a D4 1, but even this does not play.
Also, Alcohol 120% detects the starting address as -0000001 and both it and EAC detect 99 tracks with 10 audio and the rest data.
I’ve had no success with any program, including CloneCD, Feurio, Blindwrite, ISOBuster, Daemon Tools and CDEx.
Thanks for any help.
