If you have autoplay enabled on your CD drive, hold down the <Shift> key when you insert the CD. Don't let go of the shift key until the LED on your CD drive stops flickering. Be sure it has stopped flickering. It may pause and then flicker again.
I just got Moby's HOTEL CD. It was a special pressing that included the AMBIENT CD.
I made a back-up with either CCD or Alcohol. I forget which. The backup plays fine.
I haven't tried to rip from the original.
I loaned the original to my brother.
I wanted to rip the songs before he got it back to me.
I was able to rip from my back-up except for songs 10, 13 and 15 using CDex.
I had to play those three songs on my home stereo and import them through the Line-In on my soundcard using CoolEditPro to make *.wav files.
I then used CDex to convert them to MP3 to go mobile.
