For a full-time Windows user such as myself, that's a lot of work. :-)

What I find works well is to turn off CD-ROM autorun, and then download
an alternate ripper that doesn't mess with rendering the correct session
of a multi-session disc.  One such is CDex.  That's the procedure if the
DRM software isn't on your box.  If it is, you'll have to find some way
to uninstall it, and then use the steps I describe.
