How to rip Copy Controlled CDs

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Fri, 15 Dec 2006 18:51:51 -0300 (CLST)

I just bought Indestructible (Art Blakey on EMI/Blue Note - includes
Shorter on sax).  The damn thing is "Copy Controlled" and using
kAudioCreator failed to work on any of my drives.

However, running cdparanoia as root does work.  It's a bit tedious, but
it's only 6 tracks.  I just use

sudo cdparanoia -d <device> <track number>

I'm not sure root is needed.  If so, then I should try kAudioCreator as
root.  I think it's needed because cdparanoia takes over the drive reading
at a very low level.

Anyway, I am sorely tempted to write the disk to CD and stand on the
street corer selling copies after this.  All I want is to be able to
listen to music I paid good money for....  Fuckers.

Continuing with "HowTo rip CDs on Linux if they are Copy Controlled"...

Running kAudioCreator as root is no better, and cdparanoia does not need
to run as root.

So simply running cdparanoia as an ordinary user works fine.

However, this only works on one of my drives, accessed directly as
/dev/hdb.  This is an old LG RW drive.  The CD/DVD drive and a Plextor UB
drive don't work (all are old :o) - I can't get cd paranoia to open the
CD/DVD drive (although this works fine with kaudiocreator) and with the
Plextor I get the message "Couldn't disable kernel command translation
layer" (sudo made no difference).
