Hi all,

Just bought 'Groove Coverage - God Is A Girl', the Maxi CD. When I wanted to rip it MP3 to play on my Nomad, EAC gave me a very weird TOC: It says that track 1 (an audio track which plays fine on a standard cd player) is a DATA track???

Tracks 2 to 5 are reported as audio tracks (which is normal). So I guess in this new copy protection the audio tracks are surrounded by data tracks now. I've unleashed Isobuster at the cd but it really doesn't help, it rips it as a bin or a tao file... When you try to burn the bin file with Nero it says it will burn it as one large audio file and then produces nothing but garble...

Any ideas on how to make EAC or another program rip this first track as a wave file? If it doesn't that's the last CD I ever bought from Universal! I don't even intend to share my files on the Internet, I just want to play them on my Nomad...

Thanks!

Hehe I totally forgot about the powertoys. Nifty little things they are smile.gif.

Disabled autoplay, entered cd, launched EAC, still no go. CD-Rom sees 1st track as data track sad.gif.

Oh another thing, I hooked up a regular cd player to my line in (I don't have SPDIF) and recorded the 1st track perfectly so their copy protection is not helping, if you want to copy something, it'll get copied... So in my opinion their schemes don't help anything, just piss off consumers and hurt your own sales. Cause I'm not buying anything from Universal anymore.
