Just here to report that I have had some new luck ripping CD's with scratches on the printed side.

As I rip my entire CD collection, I have noticed that there are more problems with CD's that have a silver face with only minimal black printing as they get scratched on the printed side. I have now had some success by applying the white-out tape over the scratch. This helps the laser reflect off the back surface and read the data correctly. CD's that would not rip properly in EAC previously now rip fine.

Re-labeling them with the stick-on paper disks (like Neato) should work (also). The adhesive used is without a doubt, safe for pre-labeled (silk screened) disks.
