The only reason I use it is because I'm too lazy to run cdda2wav then convert to FLAC or Ogg Vorbis (WAV doens't support tagging) ;-)

There's a reason it can't rip DATA, because it's not AUDIO :-)

Any CD with a data track is one of those Enhanced CDs (it's formatted so it can have a bunch of Audio tracks, then have a Data track with bonus content, most likely requiring either Windows or Mac).
