Copy protection.

Get EAC, and before inserting the cd, hold down the shift key and then insert the cd still holding onto the shift key (disables autoplay).

Then proceed to rip it to the hard drive into wav files.

If you can't get a good 100% copy try another cd-rom or the paranoid mode.

have you tried the play button on the CD drive?

Select the tracks as if they were files (which of course they are) and load them into the media player. Press play.
