Verve / UMG copyright problems

I just got a pre-release cd from Verve that is copyright protected. There are 12 tracks on the cd, I was able to get around the protection on tracks 2 thru 12 and copy them to a cd-r. However, track 1 is impossible to get to. Is anyone familiar with the protection being used by this company? Thanks.

don’t know which protection is used, but have you tried ripping it while having AnyDVD running (of course, the option to remove audio protections has to be turned on)…?s

Thanks for your reply Razor1982. No, I hadn’t had AnyDVD running. I do have that but I never even considered that program for anything other than dvd’s. I’ll give it a try. Thanks.
