Help with Nero and "hidden" tracks

I have a CD (I could mention the name of it, but there were only 400 copies or so made, so I doubt many here would know it, but it is called Bootlevel) and there are two "hidden" tracks on the CD. To access them, you put the CD in a regular CD player, then you have to track back into negative time to find the hidden tracks. There are two songs in total before the actual first track begins, but the time is in negative time and track one starts at 0:00 according to the CD player, but in Nero, it lists the first track as starting at time index 12:14:72. I would also like to access the hidden tracks, but haven't figured out how. And in Windows Explorer, it only lists the 18 CDA tracks from time index 12:14 on. The negative timed tracks cannot be accessed thru Nero nor Windows Explorer. Is there any way to get to the tracks with my current version of Nero (5.0)?

Try getting Nero to make a duplicate of the cd via an image file first, rather than choosing to make an Audio CD. Test it on a CD-RW disc first to see if it works.

Sounds like a good idea! But I am wondering would it create an exact duplicate of the CD, with the bonus tracks still hidden? The reason I am asking is because I am working on creating some compilation CDs for a long road trip and would like to get those hidden tracks separate for the comp CD!

Ahh I see.
You might want to try ripping the CD with something like AudioCatalyst and see what that does. It might read your cd in a different way.

You could rip it as an iso or a bin/cue and then use cd mage to mount it as a virtual drive, see if that lets you access the hidden data.
