Help with INXS

Postby Fred Taghon » Tue Mar 09, 2021 8:26 am

I recently bought a used copy of the USA INXS "Bitter Tears" cd single. It's in good shape other than 1 scratch that is preventing me from getting a perfect rip of tracks 3-5. I've tried multiple rips on different drives and even ripping one track at a time but I just can't crack those 3 tracks! Wondering if someone here may have this cd and might be willing to share WAV/AIFF or FLAC files of those 3 tracks?? Appreciate any help I can get!

Google roadkills unstoppable disc copier. It's slow but it worked for me to pull three extra tracks off a Springsteen soundboard cd which no one else anywhere has.

Well those were both lightning fast responses!!!! Thank you both so much! I'm definitely going to look into that software, it sounds interesting and I do have a few discs on hand I can test it out on.

Awesome - I was able to use those 3 tracks from the FLAC rip to replace my "defective" rip! Just had to adjust the offset to match my rip and now all 5 tracks are showing as a "perfect" rip. My day is off to a very good start thanks to you both!

Sometimes CueTools can "repair" files to match the checksum in its database + AccurateRip.
