And there it sits. 8^)
I think I started with scd0 to begin with, then tried sg0 because I found
it in the /proc/scsi world and decided to go with that for a while.

Actually, I started with rip. It just disappeared waiting for cdparanoia
to tell it something interesting, which it never does. No errors, no .wav.
A friend at work suggested that the CD is copy protected, which it is,
but that's just a header setting. I don't see why it wouldn't at least
finish producing a bogus .wav file, unless there's something in the
first few sectors of each track that makes it compute weird, but I've
tried the -t switch and it doesn't help.
Like I said, it shows all the tracks and their correct titles, the
artist, etc., so it CAN read the cd a little, apparently.
