  • Ripping MP3s from Old Media with Heavy Labels ?

    Hi --- About 20 Years Ago I archived a massive collection of rare Vinyl onto CDs. I really "Did It Up" on the Super Rare Ones--

    Copied the Album Covers and printed them onto thick CD Labels ...

    Well --- Im Trying to rip the tunes off of these Custom made CDs on my modern lap-top

    and am encountering all kinds of problems --- over 80 percent will not "Rip" ---

    Is there a relatively inexpensive "peripheral" CD drive you can suggest that will successfully help me retrieve my precious data?

    Curious to hear this explained.

      Will the CDs play at all?

      If so, you may have to do a real time bounce of everything and re-record the data. If not, you're probably sunk... you can try other drives, but if the data / CD-R's are bad, using a different drive to try to get the info off of them isn't likely to help very much.

      What program are you using to rip with?
