    Re: FLAC conversion is very slow

    Possible the disk queue is full and/or main memory write cache is getting saturated? But why only with FLAC and not with ALAC? Is there something in the chain causing more I/O to the FLAC file than...

    Ok, well, I have at over 100 unique scratched discs that I use full time for testing in burst mode (and maybe a handful of unique non-scratched ones). These were all the CDs I didn't give to the used...

    Re: CD/DVD Drive Accuracy List 2012

    A clarification query for Spoon:

    I run a lot of the same test CDs in burst mode over and over again (100s of rips, sometimes 1000s per week) through the Kodak units with Teac CD-W552DA drives. The...

    If you are receiving different results with C2 on, have you tried setting the 8KB transfer size option?

    Standard Audio CDs are 16-bit/44.1khz samples. If you use a lossless codec such as FLAC when you rip from CD, that's the best audio you're going to get from the source material. If you ripped to mp3...

    Re: Unable to read CD

    Some drives say they support C2, but they don't. Or they do, but not reliably. You have to test the feature, not just trust the report from the drive that it works.

    Re: Slow ripping withe win 8 and NB11

    Correct.

    Other ideas:
    - Disable C2 pointers if enabled.
    - Try Burst ripping only.
    - Try Windows Internal API instead of SPTI.
    - Look for interfering filter drivers attached to the driver stack...

    Re: Rip using windows command line

    Spoon's answer is the better answer, but you could also create a script/program with AutoIT to click the Rip button at the right time.

    Re: dBpoweramp CD Ripper hangs constantly

    Glad to hear it's resolved or at least worked around. Out of curiosity and if you get a chance, try turning on the 8KB transfers switch with the drive connected to the marvel SATA port.

    Yeah: go FLAC, you can always transcode to another lossless or to VBR V0, CBR 320k, etc. to your heart's content later.

    Storage is so cheap now.
