Copy protected audio CDs

I have three audio CDs (in perfect condition) that won't stabilize in my drives.

The CDs are "Enslaved - Eld", "Immortal - Pure Holocaust" and "Absu - The Sun Of Tiphareth". They are all released on Osmose Productions. I guess this is the Key2Audio copy protection? None of the mentioned CDs are labeled with a warning about the protection like they should be.

I tried to insert all the discs in both my CD-ROM and CD-RW drive, but they just kept spinning. I then tried to use an older CD-ROM drive, and it was actually able to read the Enslaved and Immortal discs (but not the Absu).

The old drive was not able to create perfect copies. It didn't work to use EAC, i got an error message saying the drive is not able to detect the gaps between the tracks. I was able to make copies of the two CDs the drive could read using Nero's "Copy CD" profile. But the drive does poor DAE with audible errors.

Is there no way i can make good copies of my CDs (all three of them)?

I will never buy a CD from Osmose Productions again, unless they stop using copy protection on their releases.

1.Use a Yamaha,Plextor or Lite-On drive to read.
2.Use IsoBuster or CloneCD to rip.
