Make sure you have a backup.  Make sure you agree that I take no 
responsibility for any problems which may occur.  ;)  Then,

echo "delete from musicmetadata;" | mysql -u mythtv -pmythtv mythconverg

(assuming your username (-u) and password (-p) are mythtv).  If that 
doesn't fix your inability to rip CD's, you can restore the database ( 
http://www.mythtv.org/docs/mythtv-HOWTO-21.html#ss21.5 ).
