Can't read Akai CD's....

    Hi again!
    I have a problem that I don't know how to solve.
    I run the Emagic EXSP-sampleplayer in Cubase SX.
    When I put in AKAI-CD's to convert to EXP-files the EXSP won't "see" any CD at all... it keep saying "waiting for CD".
    So my question is, what can be wrong?
    Could it be any of the OPUS-tweaks cause this problem? Or the fact that I'm running EXPS in Cubase SX?
    Is there any other program that could just convert
    AKAI-files to other formats?( Wav's or EXP-files)
    I don't want to buy another sampler... so it need to be free or shareware ( or at least very cheap).
    I'd be very grateful for some input here.
    I really don't know where to start.

    CDXtract is the tool you need. Sorry, don't remember the URL, use a search site to locate it.

    EXSP is a sample player only. You need the EXS, built into Logic 5.x, to convert internally.

    CDXtract and Chicken Systems Translator both work well, here.
