    This may not be perfect rip, but seems to be a good option when CDs cannot be ripped by dbpa. Other CDs work the same as well. Jriver seems to rip by normal playing since it is very slow. On the Mac, it seems the fastest.
    However, I like the way dbpa organizes the files after the rip. Much less work to get them organized on a NAS drive.
    This still leaves the question why you can't rip these CDs in CD Ripper. I am able to rip hybrid SACDs no problem, as CD Ripper reads the PCM Red Book audio layer.

    and you will be missing the important value of dbpa ripping. That is, it does secure rips with potentially accuraterip matches. iTunes does NOT do secure rips. Doesn't mean that most of the itunes rips are not perfect rips (most will be), but you have no way of knowing that from itunes.

    Normally I can too. But there are some CDs that won’t rip, some of these will get into the reriping mode. Some will just go through the tracks showing error. But if the Mac can get the tracks out into files, I want need something that can get the file names, directories, and ID tags so that it is in line with what dbpa is creating.

    Another thing is that the files copied using Finder does not have the ID tag info. So manually adding these along with reorganizing them into consistent directory structure is also a pain.

    Once you manually edit the ID tag info (which you can do by right clicking the album folder and selecting "Edit ID Tags"), you can use ARRANGE AUDIO utility dsp to automatically arrange the files (and create any subdirectories) to match what CD ripper does. Just set the naming string the way you want. To use, you select the files and "convert to" the arrange audio dsp.
