Problem with Enhanced CDs/CD Extras

Post by Luriden » Sat Aug 12, 2006 1:50 pm

Whenever I have a music CD with data content on it as well, such as an Enhanced CD or a CD Extra, I can never access the data. No matter what drive I put the CD in, if I choose to explore the files on the CD, I only see the .cda files. The computer only sees it as a music CD. However, if I open the disc up in ISO Buster, it sees the files there. I have to extract them to my computer to use them. Also, when I open a CD ripping program such as CDex or Exact Audio Copy, it sees it has a data track. Has anyone ever experienced a problem like this and know the fix? I came up with nothing with a Google search.

can't you extract the audio tracks using isobuster as well? you save them as wav's then use CDex to convert to mp3.

He wants the data portion, not the audio portion...

I don't have any problem with the audio. I'm trying to find a way for Windows to read the data files on CDs with both music and data.

Maybe enable Autorun on the drive?

Or try right-clicking the drive and choosing "Explore"?

Autorun is enabled already, and like I said, using Explore just gives me .cda files.

if you have nero installed there's a way you can switch sessions on the disc if i recall correctly- so audio to data and vice versa.
