Introduction

cdparanoia is a bit different than most other CD-DA extration tools. It contains few-to-no extra features ("Too many features spoil the broth") , concentrating only on the ripping process and knowing as much as possible about the hardware performing it. cdparanoia will read correct, rock-solid audio data from inexpensive drives prone to misalignment, frame jitter, and loss of streaming during atomic reads. cdparanoia will also read and repair data from CDs that have been damaged in some way using interpolation and padding sectors with silence or 0 bytes.

cdparanoia is more or less the only secure ripper available for the Linux operating system and works best on drives that support Accurate Stream and not cache audio data.

Revisions

There have been series of bugfixes to cdparanoia, which date back to 9.8 release in 2001. Many of them include, pre-gap detection, buffering patches, kernel interface changes (CD-ROM routines), and support for SG_IO (application/SCSI commands). These were done in preperation for the stable 10.0 release. This is the last release before cdparanoia IV, which will not be backwards compatible.

Ripping methods

Some GUI's (like CDex) and the main command-line interface, allow you to control the type of extraction method that cdparanoia performs. There are several modes that can be used as specified by the user.

  • Full, Paranoia
  • Overlap
  • No Verify
  • No Sratch Detection

note: this is a work in progress
