Thread: CD Ripper Cannot Open CD Tracks

    CD Ripper Cannot Open CD Tracks

    Just bought brand new "Now That's What I Call 12" 80s (sealed box unused).
    All 4 cd's fail to rip cos dbPowerAmp says it cannot read the CD tracks.
    Just in case, I paid 20 to upgrade dPA to version 17.7
    Wasted my money....still fails to read tracks.
    Cd plays fine, just wont rip.
    Any clues anybody?

    Play fine with a Hifi CD player or with the computer (windows or apple?)?

    Managed to rip all tracks to flac using 'Express Power Ripper' from NCH Software.

    If you were having problems with all discs then you'd typically try another rip after booting into Windows safe mode, but you haven't said it's all discs, so I assume this won't make any difference.

    I've never heard of Express Power Ripper, I'd typically recommend Exact Audio Copy or CUERipper as they're both very capable rippers with AccurateRip and CTDB support, which I can't see that Express Power Ripper does, so for your own peace of mind I'd verify the rip with CUETools or PerfectTunes.

    Run this, select the option to clear settings:


    Then reinstall and try ripping a CD with the default settings.

    Followed your advice Mr Spoon.
    Uninstalled PA completely....reset.....reinstalled PA
    PA read all disks and ripped normally.
    Many thanks for your help.
