    Re: Rip Problems

    Sounds like your drive is, starting to have read problems. Have you tried cleaning the lens with IPA and runners? Many a time in my retail days a seemingly dying CD player was saved by a simple...

    Re: Can't rip "Misty"

    Completely agree.

    I've used both methods successfully, originally working out how to map the drive took me longer than everything related to ripping CDs, except trying to adapt my own naming...
  3. Re: How well does dbPowerAmp handle SATA drives connected by a SATA to USB adapter?

    I simply bent a piece of cardboard to stop the drive from jumping around too much (schmidj's duct tape / velcro is very professional!) and I'm sure my oldest Lite-On ide drive would be quieter in a...
  4. Re: How well does dbPowerAmp handle SATA drives connected by a SATA to USB adapter?

    I've used 5.25" internal drives both SATA and older ide drives via a powered USB adaptor for over five years on a low powered laptop with excellent results. I have no idea if e-SATA would be better,...
  5. Re: Using Burst Ripping Mode = Much Happier Ripping Experience

    Hi ChrisChas, obviously pleased that you are having great success this time around.

    Having ripped around 3,000 CDs, approximately 95% only required a single pass in Secure mode, which is,...
  6. Re: IDE Drive Adaptor Recommendation - SATA or USB

    Hi sneakmasterG,

    Great news that you've got the Plextor up and running. I've got a couple of drives where the molex connector is very tight, think this may be a common issue.

    Good luck...
  7. Re: IDE Drive Adaptor Recommendation - SATA or USB

    Have you got any old DVD drive you could try to test your adaptor? A work colleague has used a generic adaptor with good results.

    Regarding copy protected discs, schmidj is absolutely correct,...
  8. Re: IDE Drive Adaptor Recommendation - SATA or USB

    I've used a powered Lindy 42868 USB2 adaptor (daisy chained to 2 x USB) to ide / sata for the last six pass six years to successfully hook up both old pata and newer sata DVD drives - they have...
  9. Re: Can I combine Burst and Secure for ripping CDs in AccurateRip DB?

    Re: cd issue

    Absolutely and you beat me to it.

    My Pioneer unit for example only displays the cover art if all three criteria are net.

    The cover must be embedded.

  11. Re: Album art not showing when using USB for car stereo

    I have a Pioneer car unit and it needs three criteria to be met to display covers.

    1) The cover art needs to be embedded, though an additional Folder.jpg doesn't cause issues.

    2) Maximum...

    Was it Spoon who said he put the Uncompressed setting in for the paranoid?!
  14. Re: CD Ripper best sound quality, lossless Level 5 vs uncompressed

    I started on the default 5 and now use 8. A work colleague started on 5 and now uses uncompressed, even though he admits he can hear no difference whatsoever between Uncompressed, level 5 and level...

    I did put Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture as a David Bowie album, but it is a Bowie album.

    My wife has hundreds of Compilation albums, so OST works very well in keeping soundtracks together....
