I’d like to ask you to read my standard text although some questions have already been answered:
a) Which drives do you have? (It depends on the hardware whether you can rip protected discs or not.)
1 x Liteon 40125s
1 x HP 2x2x24
b) Which CD would you like to extract? In order to determine protection correctly you should post the record
company (e.g. Sony Music, Universal, BMG,…) and the text on the inner ring of the disc (e.g. Sony DADC,
sonopress, DOC.data,…). Tools like Clony often show wrong results when analyzing audio protection because
every drive behaves different.
Well , i had a look on the back of the CD booklet thing and it said priority records The inner ring = D.A.T.A. IFPIL 311 5367582 A E1
c) Is there a software player (e.g. CactusPJ.EXE) on the CD-ROM-part? If yes, is there a hidden file called
VERSION.TXT? Please post it’s content.
When i try to explore the CD there is nothing …
d) Which software have you tested? (CCD, ExactAudioCopy, Feurio, Nero, CDRwin 3.8/4.0A …)
EAC does not show any of the tracks either. I tryed Nero’s file encoding but that dosn’t show any of the files either , I would preff like to get this CD to MP3 first …
e) Which OS do you have?
Win XP pro
f) Have you switched off the auto insert notification?
Install ExactAudioCopy 0.9 beta 4 . After the first start configure your drive(s) and select “Yes, I’m an
expert…” (very important!). Then insert the disc and select Action -> Detect TOC manually.
(I carn’t seam to do this because it is all greyed out like there is no disk in there ?
This procedure take
a few minutes. Depending on the capabilities of your drive, after that the correct TOC should appear and you can
rip the disc. Some versions of CDS200 require a reduced reading speed because there are artificial sector-errors
inside the music-area causing clicks and drop-outs.
Feurio 1.65 is also an excellent ripper for protected discs.
Will try Feurio 1.65
