"CD Plus" not ripping to itunes/WMP

Post by SONIC122 »

So, for Christmas my mom bought herself, my dad and my brother iPods (parents got 7th gen Nanos, brother got a 5th gen video). she has been building quite a large library in iTunes from her hundred or so old CDs. one of them in particular said "CD Plus" on the front, and the mirrored back had an odd ring in the middle. it really freaked out her laptop when I opened the disc in file manager, it had some Autorun.inf and and a .exe file, i assume this was some kind of "Easter egg" that when you put the disc in a PC it opens some kind app. (i once saw this on a dankpods video with a gorrilaz CD, it played an "intro video" of sorts). the disc plays fine in my DVD player (i dont have a dedicated CD player) but it wont rip to iTunes or WMP. what would cause the PC, Disc drive and itunes to freak out when this disc is inserted? is there another program I could use to rip this disc?

P.S.: it had WIN95 and WIN98 folders on it along with the autorun.inf and .exe file, i tried to open the folders and .exe file on the disc, it just froze file manager.

if you can get them playing in itunes/wmp, software such as freeac should be able to rip the contents. i looked up CD Plus and got no relevant results. to properly help you we would probably need the name of the CD and/or the file structure

Could you name those CDs here, just in case?
