How can i rip copy protected audio cd's?


I use mandrake 9.2 . Is there any way for me to rip to mp3 my copy protected audio cd's?In WinXP i used easy cd-da extractor (v.6.5) which worked fine. Anything familiar for linux?Does easy cd-da extractor run under wine or winex3?

Can you play them in XMMS and use the disk-writer output plugin?
This will record each track seperately.
Then you can use oggenc to convert the tracks to ogg format.

I hope this helps

Please be more specific. What errors or problems did you encounter using native linux software?

Have any of you read the rules of this forum? Specifically:

Posts containing information about cracking, piracy, warez, fraud or any topic that could be damaging to either LinuxQuestions.org or any third party will be immediately removed.

Providing information about circumventing copy protection is a violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). It's a stupid law, but it is the law.

You are in Greece where the laws may differ. In the United States, it may be against the law, but a good portion of the rest of the world has not yet been broken to the draconian US copyright laws. Of course, those who don't will probably be declared terrorists and sent to Gitmo.

By the way, since ppl are now interested on copy-protected audio. How can you actually even *play* the cd in Linux (or windows for that matter), when every time that the disc is being inserted into cd drive, it starts to read it, and after a few seconds it ejects the d*mn thing..
(a Celine Dion CD..)

you may be correct to the letter of the law. The moderaters may also agree with you. I have payed over $100 dollars for an mp3 player and I too get frustated when I purchase a cd and am not able to play it on my player. That puts people in the position of illegally downloading a song, because that is the only way they can use it. I think the record companys would prefer we purchase it and then ripped it, even if it is techcinally wrong.

US law says an individual has the right to make copies of original works for fair use and back up purposes. Has been the law since the archaic VHS and Betamax days/court battles.

Unless this indivdual has stated they wish to distribute this material then it is fine to ask such a question.

No different then folks asking how to watch DVD's in linux.

What a quaint notion. I'm old enough to remember when that was the law. However times have changed and the RIAA and MPAA have spared neither effort nor expense in convincing lawmakers that their right to make money is more important than your right to save yours.

Actually, there is a difference. This is more like asking how to rip the DVD to your hard drive, which is also a violation of the DMCA. At least that is what a California federal court judge ruled about two weeks ago when she enjoined 321 Studios from selling DVD-X Copy. The company has now been required to remove DeCSS code from their product because it DEFEATS COPY PROTECTION.

That is the key point: it is now illegal in the US to circumvent copy protection. What is even scarier is that is also illegal to tell others how to circumvent copy protection. That's why you'll no longer find DeCSS code posted on a US-based website. One webmaster who was sued by the MPAA prevailed last week because the MPAA mistakenly argued that the code violated trade secrets. However, I wouldn't count on them making that same mistake the next time around.

I would suggest that you visit the EFF website or http://www.protectfairuse.org to get up to date information about your dwindling rights in this area.

Enjoy!

Good idea would be to take the cd back and ask for an unprotected version or get a refund. You have a right to a refund as the goods aren't fit for purpose, ie playing in yer pc. Unless the powers that be see that the consumer won't accept the copy-protected cds then nothing will change.
