EAC worked wonders on a CD I bought from second hand flea market type thing that had some of the surface silver coating missing. I can't play it but I managed to copy it via EAC - try burst mode or secure mode and set it for uncompressed file. It took ages, I mean hours but just set it up, leave to it, then play it back on completion and see. Hope it works for you!


Well, Good evenin', don't that sun look good goin' down...

Not exactly a scratch but I have a couple of Warner Brothers CD's that I couldn't rip to my pc, they played fine on my cd player but on the pc it sounded like too much gain on a guitar amp, full on fuzzed up sound. I turned to google and there was a tip I'd like to share. It said before you rip, randomly select tracks from the CD and play a few seconds of each on the cd drive. I thought it sounded like bull... corn. Naturally, I tried it anyway and Holy Poop, if the crazy idea didn't actually work! I was amazed and chuffed...

As long as the label side of the disc is not scratched, buffing the scratches out is always the best option. 0
