I haven't tried anything on non-unix in a very long time, so I can't
give a very good comparison. In general, though, any case where
cdparanoia can't read audio correctly using a supported drive and an
undamaged CD is a bug, and will be fixed if at all possible.

As far as I can tell from a quick search with google, these are MMC
drives... what have I missed?

I can't find any docs for the 5401B -- the earliest listed in Toshiba's
documentation is the 6401. 6401 looks like it should work, but that's
just from reading the documentation, and I've got no idea how closely
related they are to the 5401. Any chance you know more about the 5401?
Also, what kernel version are you using, which distribution, etc? Can
you show me a log of the output?

Some drives have commands to read audio, some don't. It's really about
