what is cdparanoia? cdparanoia is a bit different than most other CD-DA extration tools. It contains few-to-no 'extra' features, 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 (next to Rubyripper). Windows users can try CDex which includes cdparanoia functionality.
