Removing HDCD tags


Is there any way to copy a CD and, at the same time, remove the HDCD encoding? I have two CDs, both of which have faulty HDCD tags, and when I play them through my Denon decoder I hear a loud pop when HDCD encoding is found and then lost. I made a straight copy using CloneCD but the pops are there on the copy too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
