FreeBSD 4.10-STABLE, using ripit.pl (audio/ripit) with lame and dagrab.
I've got a (quite simple?) question which keeps me up at nights (not
How do you rip those audio CDs that are "enhanced"? That's the CDs
that have such fancy "multimedia" features you can use when you put
the CD in a CD-ROM drive (under Windows of course), eg play some
low-quality music video or navigate around some menus. I am of course
not interested in any of those features, just want to make some MP3s
from that CD so I can put them on my MP3 player.
Here's the problem I have with every CD of that kind: I can rip every
audio track except the last one, that is the track that comes before
the data track on the CD, eg:
Track 01: audio
Track 09: audio
Track 10: data
An example of such a CD is the "Rock in Rio" album by Iron Maiden.
Ripping track 09 from the CD fails, no matter what ripper I use
(dagrab, dd, cdparanoia, cdda2wav). Unfortunately I can't reproduce any
error messages at the moment, but maybe someone knows what I mean? It
basically stops reading after about 90% of the track and exists with an
error message. Note: ripping and encoding normal CDs works like a
charme, from the first to the last track.
Using a Windows machine to rip an "enhanced" CD works of course, but
I should be really surprised if such a task was impossible under
Does anybody have an idea? I'd appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
