Might be, I actually do not know.  I have seen that
some of these disks have the cd tracks and a data
section, the data section takes care of making the cd
unreadable/unplayable according to the guys that made
the cd so that it could not be copied.  Others have
very short 10 second tracks that try to confuse the
cd/dvd readers, but ripping them is the best way to
proceed and then remove the offending files and burn
the good files to another cd that will not carry all
the problems of the original one.  

What I have done with these kinds of disks, was to rip

$ cdda2wav -vall dev=/dev/sr0 -B

The whole disk, then remove the offending tracks, *the
ones that do not work*, and reburn the new ones with a
normal cd that can play normally.  While you do the
above, you may select the good tracks so that you can
later convert the files to ogg/mp3/flac, etc whichever
format better suits your needs.
