Re: ripping CD with SACD format seems impossible

Cdparanoia rejects one of my CDs. I am pretty sure that it's due to
the SACD format of the CD. I get this error:

cdparanoia III release 9.8 (March 23, 2001)

FreeBSD porting (c) 2003
        Simon 'corecode' Schubert <corecode@corecode.ath.cx>

Report bugs to paranoia@xiph.org

004: Unable to read table of contents header

Unable to open disc.  Is there an audio CD in the drive?

So I was wondering if there is some kind of persuasive option
I can use on the cdparanoia command?


Ordinary cd drives can't read SACD. There are some freestanding
cd players that can also play SACD, but I don't know of any pc
drives that can do it. Some SACDs are hybrids and can be read
as a cd (at cd quality). If your disc is one of those it should be
possible to rip it, but I don't know what options, if any, you would
need. Sorry I can't help more than that.
