    CDRDAO L-EC Error

    I'm not certain if this is the right place for this, though it seems appropriate.

    I'm making a backup of a mixed mode CD (data on track 1 and the rest of the tracks are audio) so I'm using this command:

    cdrdao read-cd --read-raw --datafile IMAGE.bin --driver generic-mmc:0x20000 --device /dev/cdrom IMAGE.toc
    And it always gets an L-EC error on a single sector. The CD has seen better days, but why isn't CDRDAO retrying the sector?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    If you try to write to another disc, does it give the same error? Unless it is a re-writable disc, you cannot write to it more than once. If it fails, it is a coffee coaster.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
