This will not really help you by what you are doing but it still might help you in creating a copy of a copy protected music CD.
[And just for the protocol: Everybody should have the right to create a backup copy of any CD bought. I myself do have a car CD player that "eaty" my CDs after a while. So if I do not have a copy - shall I always buy a new one???]
I just take the output of a sound CD and record it with audacity. Then you have a copy of the CD and it should only have really almost unhearable copy loss. These files you can burn again to an audio CD without copy protection.
I know it is not really the fastest way but it works at last. :)
I am not sure if the following will help you but I once had luck as well with an older Linux System and an older CD-Rom drive that just did not care about copy protection. But since I do not have this PC anymore I just record them in audacity ...
It once worked in XP?
