Windows 7: Ripping in HDCD

Ripping in HDCD

Hello all and a Happy New Year to everyone.
I have alot of cds that are recorded in HDCD. I would like to back these up on my computer and if needed burn them to a new cd. Is there a plugin or a way to do this and preserve the HDCD capabilities. If I'm not mistaken regular windows media player will not do this. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Happy New Year

The few HDCDs I have were ripped on an older XP system that I still have running but I think the HD was probably lost during the ripping - using Windows Media Player at 320 Kb. Seemed to be some of the older CDs I bought.

Perhaps someone will come up with a solution though?

Are these factory CDs and what format are they now in?

No problem, I was trying to understand HDCD. I have read that is is a recording method, now owned by MS, that attempted to make "better than CD quality audio" and discontinued ~2008.


I found this CUETools wiki which is supposed to do it. Use the links on the left to find out more.
