Make sure that you set the "Output to" folder. Otherwise it
will try and save the new files to "Same folder as original" and
this is not possible if the original folder is an audio CD.

thank you for you help but that didn't seem to fix the problems either, it's just not ripping right for some reason. I welcome any other suggestions....thanks all

I think you must be doing something wrong. Don't always blame the program for your mistakes.

Okay Ken just so you know I'm not doing anything any different then I did before so it's obviouly not my fault...:p I checked to make sure the settings and everything were still the same, which they were, and so tell me how it can't be the program in just some way. Since I've not installed any new software, hardware, or anything else that might have changed my computer in any way... Hope you are understanding now that it wasn't anything I've changed or done on my part Thanks...

Well I have a suggestion, it sounds like something in the registry is stopping DMC on your PC.

So open up registry editor, (run>>regedit) then navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Illustrate\ and delete the entire dBpowerAMP folder. Upon restarting dBpowerAMP, it will regenerate the reg keys thus resetting all your settings back to the defaults and is like a soft reinstall.
