CD ripping issues


Hey-
i just bought the new hopesfall cd today called "A-types". The first thing i was going to do when i got home was rip it because i have a baby who is very good at getting to things you thought you put away properly. I used KAudiocreator, which has worked fine before. But this time, i got errors about the disc being damaged. Mind you the disk is brand new. I didnt even play it in the car on the way home. I opened the wrapper and put the disc straight into the computer. I know the disc isnt damaged, as i am listening to it now. Does anyone know how i can overcome this? Seems like some form of copy protection, however, i can make a straight copy of the cd with K3B with no problem. I don't want a copy, though, i just want a backup of .ogg files on my computer so i can listen to it on the computer, but leave the real deal safe in my car away from the kids.. Please advise.

PS - also had this happen with a cd i bought 2 weeks ago called "Moment of Truth:, by 'da T.R.U.T.H. I do legally own these cd's but would like to back them up.

Thanks,
-myk

What program does KAudio* use to extract the tracks?


Cheers,
Tink

nevermind.. looks like it was a configuration error on my part. the script to configure has changed slightly from kde 3.2 to 3.3. i ran the wizard again. i still get that message, but it continues to rip and encode with no problems.

Does it only give you this error on Track 1? If so, then you probably have "copy protected" CDs.

If this is the case, you can be finigly. Since "copy protected" audio CDs do not conform to the standards layed out by Sony and friends, any "copy protected" CD cannot legally use the Compact Disc Logo. Check carefully and if it carries one, and is indeed a copy protected disc, then you can (if you wish) take the disc back because it is faulty.
