I hope when somebody addresses this they consider all relevant factors.

In Windows (95) when using Easy Cd Creator, if I copy a disk from a CD 
without that audio cable, I get a digital copy.  With the cable 
installed I seem to get an analog copy.  Don't know where the magic is 
that does that, but the feature is exploitable -- sometimes when I have 
a bad CD (something with scratches or whatever) I get a better copy 
going the digital route and sometimes I get a better copy going the 
analog route.
