Hello, i am sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question. I was planning on buying Led Zeppelins "How The West Was Won" reading about it further states that these (3) disc box set are Copy Protected not having own such a cd with this problem i wanted to know if EAC will be able to rip this?, or maybe someone else has ripped this with success with EAC? If not i'll do with out the cd then i suppose. I am running a vista pc in case that makes a big difference.

I can rip copy protected CDs with anything. The thing is that copy protected CDs start up software that will mess up the ripping process. This is the way that Velvet Revolver's CD worked and every other copy protected CD that I have ripped. All you need to do is enable the EAC option to disable auto-start on your CD drive. You can either do that or simply hold the shift key (Windows only) while inserting your CD until your computer recognizes it. I have ripped copy protected CDs with EAC, iTunes, dBpowerAMP, and even Windows Media Player.

You just have to stop the copy protection software from running when you insert the CD. Another option is to rip the CD in Linux or Mac OSX as the copy protection is probably Windows only (this is the case 99.99% of the time).
