PostPosted: Fri Oct 12, 2012 3:58 pm    Post subject: Problem ripping audio Reply with quote

Just bought a fine audio cd and wanted to rip it for my phone but all attempts to do so fail. I tried K3B, Soundkonverter, with Windows and iTunes and some other programs. Tested Exact Audio Copy, Isobuster and so on. Nothing worked. Cdparanoia gives me an "scsi_read_error". Other CDs work fine under Linux and Windows.

My idea was to copy the files to my hard disk with dolphin but nothing happens. So I'm quite clueless now.

I'd appreciate some good ideas.

Rip to Ogg Vorbis, for example^
Code:

$ mplayer2 cdda://XX -dumpaudio -dumpfile XX.pcm; ffmpeg -f s16le -ar 44.1k -ac 2 -i XX.pcm -acodec libvorbis -aq 100 XX.ogg

where "XX" is number of audio track.

Thanks. It worked but it took ages for just one song to get ripped and the resulting file sounds distorted. Maybe I have to try a different dvd drive.

Your CD might be one those notorious ones with copy protection on it. One way to determine if it is such a CD is to check whether it has the CDROM logo on it. Copy protected CDs can not carry this logo. There might be other means, for instance looking for the tracks at the outer rim which contain the protection bits.

Search Google for hints on how to identify such CDs and also search for the music company which issued the CD to test whether they apply copy protection on their CDs.

Tolstoi,

Take the CD back to the shop and exchange it ... tell them it won't play in your 20 year old CD player.
Make a real nusiance of yourself.

As others have said, if it doesn't carry the CD logo, its not CD-DA compliant. I've not had any bother with Sound Jucier on these discs. I'm fairly sure it uses CDParanoia behind the pretty GUI.
Rip to FLAC too, not ogg or mp3 so at least the rip does don't use lossy compression. You can then put mp3fs over the top of your FLAC directory and have it convert on the fly.

That's what I did when I bought one such CD. Took it back to the shop. Fortunately, I had autorun disabled in Windows, otherwise I am not sure what kind of evil daemon/rootkit it might have installed. Also, with autorun disabled, it didn't play on Windows too and I could convince the shop to exchange the CD with some other (I would have rather had my money back, but they wouldn't pay me back). As of now, the company issuing the CD is in my blacklist. Never going to buy their products.

Don't worry, relaxing, just relaxing... :)
Is this plays fine (without any distortion)?
Quote:

$ mplayer2 cdda://01

I guess not. And if this CD is correctly playing only by appropriate software (which is included on CD) - you can rip it by RWYH method ("Record what you hear").
I will not give you direct links, cause it's commercial. But Google is your helper ;)

ps As variant, you can try to search that CD at internet (torrent trackers, thematic forums, etc). Maybe somebody already done this :)

The Cd has the CD logo printed on the disc. It's release by Reprise Records who seem to have a reputation for copy write protected CDs. Yes, I would have returned the album but I ordered it online and have of course thrown away the bill immediately after receiving the CD. I wish I could get rid of that bad habit :).

If I correctly understand, the CD is playing normally only under Windows. I don't know is there 'win32' port of vsound... or any other open source alternative.

Tolstoi, what CD did you buy? ...by the way :)

No, it won't play under Windows either. It just plays on my CD player. It's The Meters - Rejuvenation from 1974.

There are FLAC rips available per usenet, thus there needs to be some way to get to the data. If you've got Windows installed, try with the help of AnyDVD.

At least, you can record the cd with audacity or some audio editors. Just plug your cd player output to the line in of your sound card and record. It wont be a digital but an analog record. If your sound card is good enough, you won't notice much difference.

@cord, you should remove that link as I'm pretty sure it's a violation of the forums' rules.

Vsound is still around: http://www.vsound.org/ but no ebuild for Gentoo as far as I can see. Recording with Audacity is possible. I tried it but I'm a little impatient for that kind of stuff. After recording you've got one large file which have to edit if you want to seperate the songs.
