ripping a protected cd


hey guys i'm trying to rip a cd which is rightfully mine, i want all my songs on a future home mm-system.. only thing is, this is one of those cds with that protection on it... it's a mixed media cd with windows software up front... only visible in windows...!! so it's not seen as an audio cd... so cdparanoia can't see the audio and i can't mount it as an iso... cdparanoia -Q doesn't see the tracks man.. cdrdao read-cd --read-raw doesn't even see them!

Well hate to tell you this but this one one of the reasons that its protected, to keep people from ripping them, etc.

It is rightfully yours though and your allowed to copy, in which you could probably burn to back up with no problems. Its just going to be hard for you to rip the cd most likely at this time.

Probably your best bet is to search around, see if anyone else has created a tool to get around this. Unfortunately though, being at this site in public view, I can't be in so declined to tell you how to crack your cd to be able to rip. (Even if I did know how, I most likely wouldn't post it on a public forum in which I should also have to mention to others not to do on this site as well.)

Regards and good luck.

Your right copy protected CD's suck. Once we purchase a copy of the CD we should be able to store the music in whatever format that we want. Now I don't support the music sharing features in programs like kazaa. But thats what they are going to push more and more people to since, in most cases, only part of the CD's that are released for any particular album are copy protected. One of the best things you can do it just return the CD and get another.

Well, if you still got your windows box you can try with CloneCD, it will sure make u a 1:1 working copy of your cd. And if you fing a way to copy cds (protected) with Linux, let me know, hehe.

I suggest trying a program called Grip (I don't have a link for it off-hand). But I've used it to rip lots of CDs and I've never had any problems. Just a thought.
