Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I have two CDs that have XCP protection. They will play in my portable CD player, but my laptop will not recognize the CD as having audio tracks. I tried using EAC, and after altering the TOC to "native" and then "manual," EAC finally recognizes the tracks as audio tracks. However, the program will not play the songs, nothing comes out of my speakers. And when I try to test or rip the tracks, the process times out. Has anyone dealt with XCP protection before? I would appreciate any advice. Thank you!
