playing with these "copy controlled" cds, Kim and I find out that MacOsX
sees two session, one with windows crap and an other one with audio. We
managed to rip all songs except one as, probably, the added wrong crc
checksum that makes the cd reader reading the same sector over and over
again until it gives up with I/O error. Do you know of any way of
ignoring these CRC errors ? Do you succeded of reading the second
session with the windows data ?
