I have never had any problems with cdparanoia. It rips even the worst cds that barely played in my home cd player. Great work!
will it ever work with :
Hardware Class: cdrom
Model: "COMPAQ HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8240B"
Quality of rips
Anyone know a good way to determine how closely a rip matches the original? I'd like to know if a track had skips, scratches, etc. and if those errors will show up in the final WAV file. I'd like to be able to store this information in an file so eventually I could determine the overall quality of my digital recording collection. The documentation on the CDParanoia website indicated that the '-I' option would log errors during the rip to a file, but that option doesn't appear to be in the 9.8 release.
Re: Printing CD contents
cdparanoia -eQ 2> filename
That should do the trick.

Maybe cdparanoia uses stderr for the output you want, instead of stdout. Using progname 2>file or progname 2>&1>&file would get the output you want to the text file, the former style is recommended. Have fun! ;)
Printing CD contents
I like the contents listing from cdparanoia, but was frustrated trying to output it to a file for editing.
I managed to do it using cut & paste between 2 terminal windows under X-Windows. Is there any plan to allow output to sdout?

Still holds true
Paranoia is one of those apps that i truly can't live without, to this date it hasn't failed to rip a single cd i own, even those from something like 8 years ago that has some interesting scratches.
Truly a great application.
I have had nothing but success with this tool. It's great at ripping CDs that other apps just give up on, because of scratches and such. It has plenty of command-line options and does a good job of telling how much trouble it's having with each track.
Works great with RedHat 6.1
Thoroughly enjoy using this application. The batch ripping and abort-on-skip features are the best. Excellent README documentation made using it with multiple readers installed much easier!
I'm using it now along with GRIP as a front end. The two work flawlessly together. I recommend this app for glibc 2.1 systems because it works nicely on both of my RedHat 6.1 systems.
Are there any CD rippers that can rip "hidden" tracks (e.g. Songs in the key of X and They Might Be Giants' Factory Showroom CDs)from an audio D? Can CDParanoia do this? TIA! :-)
