I recently found this forum looking to answer a question I have regarding my CDs.

I have about 125 CDs that have tracks divided into "sub-tracks" called indexes; and I'm looking for a way to get these indexes as separate tracks or computer files.

This is proving to be quite a challenge. I was able to find out it has something to do with what are called "PQ subcodes" on the CD; and I managed to find software (called DiscJuggler) that used this feature to identify these indexes, including the starting point, ending point, and duration. Unfortunately, it did not allow me to pull out the individual indexes into their own audio files or CD tracks.

There are (very expensive) programs that work with CDs in a database, but my CDs are not in any database; and I could not afford to spend hundreds of dollars if they were.

I'm wondering if anyone is aware of any program (preferably for Windows XP or Vista) that will do what I am looking to do in terms of "extracting" individual indexes?

If not, is there a program that would allow me to type in the index information (start time, length, etc.) I can get from DiscJuggler to isolate those particular parts of the CD?

Based on all the reported problems I've seen with EAC and post-XP OSes (typically 64-bit versions), I'm not surprised.

It could be that your discs don't actually have indices >1, or your drive is not capable of determining them correctly with EAC. I would try a different drive if you have one first. I would then check the each gap detection method and also adjust the accuracy level if necessary, though it might not have any effect.

Otherwise you might need to rip as a single-file image, manually edit the cue sheet and re-split by index, or use a wave editor as DVDdoug suggested. If I were to manually edit the cue sheet, I would still probably use a wave editor to determine the index points, making sure to configure it so that is displays time in CDDA format (75fps).
