Stopping CD protection?

    I've been using this program for some time now and I love it. I just reading the website and whatnot and I noticed that it says that AnyDVD has:

    "Features AnyCDDA: play, copy and rip protected audio CDs".

    I have a protected cd and I would like to back it up so I don't wreck the original. The cd is: "DJ Quicksilver - Clubfiles: The album". It says its Copy Controlled (

    So my question is, AnyDVD is or isn't supposed to stop this kind of protection? If not, will it be incorporated in further releases?

    Download and use Exactaudiocopy
    Have anydvd running in the background.

    Can you rip it now?

    That is exactly what I use. I have the setup off of this page: I'm using the latest version of both EAC, the LAME encoder, and AnyDVD. It starts to copy the first track and about 1/8th into the song it just stops. It does that for every track.

    When you insterted the disc, did it autoplay? Did you have Anydvd running at the time?

    Eject and reload the disc. Hold down the shift key on your keyboard while loading the disc in.

    In answer to your question, I have no idea whether Anydvd is supposed to help with this cd.

    Exactaudiocopy has an English forum here:

    Try asking about your issue there, and see what they say.

    Any release after EAC version 0.95 beta 3 will not retrieve the native TOC. The author never got in legal trouble but the issue was debated publicly so it was removed. The latest current release is 0.95 beta 4.

    Try getting a hold of EAC 0.95 beta 3 and seeing if you can get it to work.

    Interesting. Thanks. Oddly beta 3 is still offered on the main website.

    I've held the Shift key down so it doesn't autorun and I actually turned off the autorun feature. I also tried the older version of EAC and still nothing. I will check out that forum as well though.

    Will you guys be stopping Copy Control anytime?

    Also, if you say you are stopping copy potection. How come this wasn't incorporated?

    When you right-click over the setting in AnyDVD:

    I have yet to have it not work when I backed up any protected Audio CDs. I don't think it's been updated since it was added to AnyDVD. So if the protection goes beyond what was listed above then AnyDVD just won't work on it.

    Will it ever get worked on, so it does work?

    I have no idea. Maybe James or Peer will have an answer.

    On a side note, have you tried to make a 1:1 backup of the original with CloneCD? I'm not saying it'll work for sure but it might.

    there is also an archive of older versions of Exact Audio Copy here:

    I know that that feature does not work on all CDs and all drives. Have a look through the audio copy-protection forums on CDFreaks and you'll see that some drives work better than others.

    I have tried using every trick in the book (that I know of) to backup a copy of The Living End but the damn protection pretty much freezes up my computer and locks the drive. I really, really hate audio copy-protection.

    They are saying on the boards that this drive bypasses it, because it's so old and doesn't have the fimware that detects the protection.

    "Yamaha CRW F1 (appears to read all copy protections and all versions of the copy protections, also the older and more harder versions)."

    But I still think that if AnyDVD or Slysoft advertises that it can [in fact] stop cd audio protection, it should be implemented.
