Is it a hybrid disc or a pure SACD-only disc? Have you tried playing
it in a normal stand-alone CD- or DVD-player, something *not* capable
of playing SACD?

If it is a pure SACD-only disc: give up. Your CD- or DVD-rom player is
not capable of reading it and AFAIK no PC optical reader is.

If it is a hybrid disc, it is dual-layer: it contains CD-layer and a
DVD-like layer which contains the SACD information. I think CDparanoia
might be confused by the second layer.

Are you trying this with a CD-rom or DVD-rom drive?
