Tested with Autechre's EP7 which has a 9:44.57 pregap:

Plextor CD-RW: PX-W2410A = YES
Firmware 1.04
EAC detects overread into lead-in & -out
Read offset +98 samples

LiteOn DVD+-RW: SOHW-832S = NO (timing problem; rips silence)
Firmware VCG5G
EAC detects overread into lead-in
Read offset +12 samples

I may need to try the Lite-On with a hidden track again to double-check.

Confirmed.  I tested my SOHW832S (CodeGuys firmware) again with Songs for the Deaf and was just getting red lights all the way so I terminated the rip.
I'm on a horse.

I tested another 3 drives. All 3 do the red light /silence thing.

NEC DV-5800A No (Silence)
NEC NR-7800A No (Silence)
SAMSUNG SN-124 Yes! 

This thread finally spurred me to try the other computers in the house and I discovered my dad's old Dell PIII laptop could rip the hidden track at the beginning of Melotron - Weltfrieden perfectly.

Not only should we keep a running record of what drives can do this we should record which CDs have these tracks in case people might not have even noticed they have them.  Everyone I was telling about this when I got excited and finally ripped that track hadn't even heard of such a hidden track.  I wonder how many other albums are floating around out there with the owners completely oblivious.

I forgot to mention that in my quest for some way to rip that hidden track I discovered that our DVD player just spits out an error code as soon as I try rewinding from the start of the first track.  Is that legitimate behavior or are these tracks actually breaking Redbook?  I know my old 5CD Denon carousel will play the track but it was very hard to rewind to the beginning of it because if I went too far it too would choke with an error code.  Unfortunately not only that but I had to turn it off and back on before the error was cleared.

BenQ DW1620 - NO (Rips Silence)
Mitsumi CR-4804TE - YES

Tested with Super Furry Animals' Guerilla.
Odd that the newer drive can't handle this while the (much) older one can.

Good question. I think that they don't break Red Book (the gap must be at least 2 seconds long), but the Red Book doesn't force any player to be able to read them. CD players are supposed to start at track 01 index 01.

I've updated http://www.daefeatures.co.uk/ so that you can now also catalogue this feature along with the other drive features (along with some other minor visual changes). If you have already submitted your drive features you can edit your submission and include this information.

If anyone has any problems / comments etc feel free to post them here.

Drive = HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4120B
Firmware = A111
Rips sound = yes (although the start and end seem a bit abrupt)

if it works with your test cd i wonder why eac fails to detect the track hidden on this cd, i didnt put that much effort in at the time but might see if i can rerip it later.

edit just pulled the cd from my pile of stuff i have to rip and eac detected it fine this time :/ maybe i have updated eac in between the times i tried to rip it. do you have to rip cd's like this as an image as the guide for the test says? i ask because i prefere seperate tracks and gap detection seems awful slow (i dont usually use it but it seems your forced to when ripping images).

Just a note - I submitted my NEC NR-7800A and I seleted no for overread.  EAC reports yes for Lead-In and Nero reports no...  I'm not sure which is more accurate so I just went with no.  I normally don't have it enabled in my EAC settings.

(edit) Oh and I see that the 7900A entry says yes for lead-in too.  The drives are exactly the same as far as I can tell as far as offsets and everything.  I guess the overread test for EAC and Nero just don't agree.

Just to add one more to the list.
I can read and extract the hidden tracks before index 01 with my Pioneer DVR-108 drive.  Given that the 110 is also in the list, I imagine it's a pretty safe bet that the model in between, the 109, can also do so 

Edit: Fixed typo

You can either rip as an image or use "Copy Range" and make a track out of the pregap.  It seems that the Snap Gap or Snap Track doesn't recognize Track 01 Index 01 so I use the keyboard (arrow keys) on the slider to get to exactly 00:00.00 (if you're anal about bit-perfect/exact timing.)
Slightly offtopic: For me, no single gap detection method will work for all discs, even brand new/unscratched discs can be very slow to detect.  Set to Secure gap detection, method B works most of the time, but sometimes it hangs; I can leave it for an hour and it's still on the same track.  Try each method if you're having problems, one of them will work eventually.

I can confirm that as well on my DVR-112D, and that Lite-On LH-20A1P cannot, meaning that the rip is the correct length, but silence.
Funny thing is, Nero CD/DVD Speed reports that the Lite-On can overread both into Lead-In and Lead-Out, and the Pioneer into neither.

Exactly.  My Yamaha can't overread from the lead-in, but it can do HTOA.

Not only should we keep a running record of what drives can do this we should record which CDs have these tracks in case people might not have even noticed they have them.

There is a pretty long list of CDs containing hidded tracks in the session pregap in the Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pregap

It seems reasonable not to start a new list but to just update the Wikipedia one.

I did the hidden song test on my laptop (IBM/Lenova T60P Thinkpad), adding my results:

Bit comparison (foobar)

source wave vs eac extraction
Comparing failed (length mismatch : 7:02.428254 vs 7:02.440000, 18629086 vs 18629604 samples).


source wave vs r13 rip as one extraction
Comparing failed (length mismatch : 7:02.428254 vs 7:02.440000, 18629086 vs 18629604 samples).

eac vs r13 rip as one
differences found: 16602913 sample(s), starting at 0.0249660 second(s), peak: 1.9550781 at 105.6849887 second(s), 2ch


eac took like 2+ hours to extract the pre-gap audio, r13 took about a minute or 2 (including ultrasecure passes)

So, from what I can see, MATSHITADVD-RAM UJ-842 does appear to support HTOA however it does not appear to be 100% bit accurate to the source, although I could not discern any audible differences between any of the 3 (source, eac, r13).

It should also be noted that I burnt the test cd with the same drive, what consequences that may cause I don't know.

I just want to add my results:

Used "White Ladder" from David Gray (was the only album in the wikipedia pregap list that I own). It contains about two minutes of music before track 1.

I used EAC 0.99 pb4 and the "copy range" command set from zero to the end of track 1. All drives were set to my usual secure ripping settings.

All my drives succeeded in ripping that range with music. And the outcome was bitidentical from all three drives. (Did an inverted mix and it was all zeros.)

- Plextor Premium (I) 1.07
- Plextor DVD 716A 1.11
- AOpen 1648/AAP Pro 1.04

Best regards,
weaker
