I don't know anything about how to do it personally, but if you want
to try to see how it's done in other languages you might check the
source for CDEX ( ), which I guess is a
Windows-only application but you should still probably be able to find
the ripping/converting algorithm, or cdda paranoia ( ), which is for Linux and has a SVN
repository you can get the code from.

Probably not the answer you were looking for, but maybe it's a start ;)
