View Full Version : Codec Error

06-08-2002, 07:00 PM
When trying to rip from a CD to MP3 I get this error:

"CODEC decompression error for '\\CdRom\Track01.cda'
Unable to Rip track - make sure correct Ripping method is selected and CD Drive supports digital audio extraction."

What does this mean and what do I do to fix it??

Converting MP3 to WAV works fine.

Things to check:

1: Are you using the Audio CD Input utility that came with dMC? You shouldn't simply copy cda tracks from Windows Explorer.

2: Is anything else reading the CD drive at the time?

3: Open Audio CD Input, select Options and then Advanced. Try changing the method.

4: If you are using Windows NT/2000/XP, make sure you are logged on with an administrator account.
