Subject 3-2 How do I extract tracks from or copy all of an audio CD Start with the CD-DA FAQ httpwwwtardisedacukpsychecdda Take a look at httpcometocdspeed to see if your CD-ROM drive is up to the task EAC from httpwwwexactaudiocopyde is often recommended for extracting ripping audio tracks To copy from CD to CD the source drive needs to support digital audio extraction which is rare among older drives but very common in current models Ideally the copy program will use disc-at-once recording to produce a duplicate that mimics the original as closely as possible CDRWIN works well see section 6-1-7 Some programs will only copy the CD to the hard drive and from there to CD-R some will allow CD-to-CD directly but only if the source is a SCSI CD-ROM and some will work with IDE or SCSI As with copying CD-ROMs you must be able to read data off of the source drive faster than your recorder is writing If you can only extract audio at 1x youre not going to be able to do a CD-to-CD copy reliably If youre just interested in extracting digital audio you dont even need a CD-R unit just a CD-ROM drive that supports Digital Audio Extraction DAE and some software The CD-DA sites noted at the top of this section list drives that support DAE have software to evaluate your existing drive and have links to several different DAE applications Different drives can extract digital audio at different speeds For example the Plextor 6Plex can extract audio at 6x while the NEC 6Xi can only extract at 1x The Plextor UltraPlex has been clocked at over 20x Some CD-ROM and CD-R drives have trouble extracting digital audio at high speed so if youre getting lots of clicks and pops when extracting you should try doing it at a slower speed You may also run into trouble if you try to extract faster than your hard drive
