I’m trying to back-up 2 Miles Davis CDs.
Miles Davis - Decoy (CBS Inc.)
Miles Davis - Bitches Brew (2CD Set) (Columbia/Sony)
I believe these discs predate Sony’s wierd protection that requires you to hold down the shift key when iserting the CD tray.
The CBS disc is read forever.
If I hold the shift key down forever, I can eventually explore the CD.
Sometimes it doesn’t work and I have to reboot.
Nero will not do a disc copy.
After selecting disc copy and clicking new to start, it never starts.
I CAN’T create a new audio CD with Nero.
When I drag the *.cda files over, they are never extracted.
I CAN use CDex to extract most of the songs to *.wav files.
However, the disc rotates at top speed.
It sounds faster than ever and makes a loud hum.
I can feel a vibration and think perhaps the CD wobbles…maybe, maybe not.
There are 7 songs on the disc.
The disc is scratched and prevents me from extracting songs 5 and 6.
I can use Cool Edit Pro to play/record songs 5 and 6.
I can then use NERO to burn extracted songs 1-4 & 7 and recorded songs 5 & 6.
The Columbia/Sony disc oddly enough does NOT require me to hold down the shift key.
It does have the same problem with NERO.
Nero Wont make a disc copy or extract to create a new audio disc.
I haven’t tried CDex or Cool Edit Pro with this disc yet.
Could something have loaded on my computer from a disc that would preclude me from disc copying and/or creating a new audio CD by dragging the *.cda files over?
