  1. Re: Tell me how to choose selected tracks in metadata search ?

    Not sure what you mean. What exactly are you trying to do.

  4. Re: Want to make playlist on laptop for listening and burning

    I also recommend foobar2000 as an excellent player.
  5. Re: Is there a way of knowing how many frames need to be re-ripped without Secure mod

    No. It depends on each rip. Could be 10 frames, could be 10,000 frames.

    Re: Recording tracks that failed AR

    really doesn't matter and doesn't have to be expensive. I have brand new CDs that rip with error on one drive and rip fine on a different drive. All my drives are cheap standard drives that come...

    Re: Drive cache: What does it do

    cache is just keeping a bit of info in memory, roughly speaking. No cache is good. When there is a cache, the software has to "empty" this cache when making multiple passes for secure ripping...

    Re: dbpoweramp ripping CD's by unwary user

    Seems odd that dbpa would mess up 500 CDs. Also not sure what you mean by "wrapped". dbpa doesn't wrap anything. Seems like your music server/player doesn't like the length of some names. What...

    I've also seen this with some tracks having the "total disk" field filled in.

    Re: CD Import NEWB

    Yes, with respect, you are not understanding. There is way, way more to lossless vs lossy than cutoffs. That's one of many modifications lossy codecs make to audio. Lossy codecs use psychoacoustic...
  11. Re: How many frame does it take to make a noticeable noise in the track?

    all should be fine. My office computer rarely rips above about 15 or so. My home computer, with an external drive in a SATA enclosure, connected via USB to my laptop, can rip super fast 30-40 or...
  12. Re: Would you do anything different to rip SACD?

    to emphasize, dbpa does not rip SACD. Almost nothing rips SACD without some hacking and maybe an old game console. Google ripping SACD. But most (all?) SACDs also contain a CD layer. So when you...

    Re: CD Import NEWB

    Rip to lossless. That's the best you can do with any CD no matter what. Unless you have the ability to track down the band, force them to find the master tapes and remaster the album in the manner...

    Re: What does it mean when it says "X AR"

    Yes, if it has the same CRC, it is EXTREMELY likely it is a secure rip, i.e., the best you'll get.
  15. Re: How many frame does it take to make a noticeable noise in the track?

    "too long" is relative. If there is no AR match, the program runs as long it needs to try and get a secure rip (matching CRCs on different passes). I think I set it to end after 1 hour. Why would...
  16. Re: Unable to rip new CD. Every track is showing as "Insecure".

    of course, even though every track insecure, listen to the rip. It may sound perfectly OK. Insecure could mean a few frames are wrong. But a few frames being off wouldn't even be audible.
  17. Re: Unable to rip new CD. Every track is showing as "Insecure".

    hard to say. they often didn't mention this on the CD itself. About what year was this CD released? Anyhow, if dbpa is working on most other disks, then it is definitely something odd about this CD....
  18. Re: Unable to rip new CD. Every track is showing as "Insecure".

    is it a CD with "protection". I didn't think they were issuing many of these lately but in the late 90s/early 2000s, they issued lots of CDs that couldn't be easily ripped.

    Re: What does it mean when it says "X AR"

    means your CD didn't match the Accuraterip database. But this could be that your CD is a different pressing than the CD that's in the AR database (this happens). But when ripped via Secure, the...
  20. Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    happy to help. Experiment a bit with some ripping and then post any questions that come up....
  21. Re: Is it faster to rip everything in burst first and then pick the inaccurate tracks

    No. Bad idea. Secure mode will first try with BURST, and if AR match will then stop with good rip. It only moves on to the additional SECURE steps when the first Burst rip doesn't match. So it's...
  22. Re: If you cancel a ripping session when it's not done yet, could that corrupt the fi

    yes. Why not let it try to rip with secure no matter what. You're only ripping the CDs once. Might as well do it right. You can do other things while ripping. Rip right, rip once!!!
  23. Re: How many frame does it take to make a noticeable noise in the track?

    40 frames should be fast. a couple of minutes maybe. And are you not setting all your rips to be secure ripping? That's the most efficient. Set for secure. It tries a burst rip (fast), then...
  24. Re: Need advice before ripping collection to FLAC

    1. I'd set to ultrasecure for ripping and leave it that way. The beauty is that if the CD is in the AccurateRip database, dbpa will do a burst rip, see that it matches the AR database entry, and...
