It could be the case that these cds really do have a track 0 as a hidden
track. Unfortuneately it seems that many cdroms have problems reading that
track as their existance breaks the red book(?) standard - hence the track is
zero sized. I had problems ripping the hidden track at the begining of ep7 by
Autechre for that reason.
Try putting the offending cd into a regular cd transport, press play, then
reverse back a track to see if one exists.
