    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    I really don't know the answer to this (the drive or whether all USB connected drives don't work with C2). I've never looked at the list of top drives. I come from the approach, of "having several...

    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    I suppose C2 working is better in that case, at least theoretically. Practically speaking I'm not sure how much it matters. I have 3 different drives. I'm away from my computer and not sure what...

    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    As an experiment, try it with C2 errors unchecked. This is often the culprit, even on drives that supposedly support C2 error detection.
    edit: and I've seen several cases where drives that support...

    Re: New member and basic ripping set up.

    The short answer is that WMP can alter your metadata tags and artwork without your knowledge.
  7. Re: AccurateRip: Inaccurate (confidence 1) Secure: Yes [F7DF772B]

    correct. Secure but does not match some other rip. The way AR works it is not because the other rip is insecure. But could be a different pressing. And only seems to be one to compare to. Not a...

    Conversion is just as easy as reripping. Review the help info on conversion then post any questions you have.

    Re: New member and basic ripping set up.

    Do not rip twice. Just use the dbpa converter application to convert your flac files to mp3. And I would not let WMP touch my files. The program is turned off on all my windows computers. Look into...

    Re: Volume Normalize and Trim Silence

    1. ReplayGain just writes the info to a tag to be used by a player. ReplayGain(apply) actually modifies the audio itself to change volume. One does not need a ReplayGain capable player in the second...

    Re: highest quality flac ripp

    That is it! It does no harm for me to paint my toenails purple while I am ripping CDs. But this has about the same chance of improving sound quality as ripping to uncompressed FLAC.

    Re: Replay Gain model lost

    Early on, the default RG in dbpa was -23 LUFS. That was too quiet for me too. I was using -18 instead (as it matched up well with the older ReplayGain model). dbpa later changed default to -18. ...

    Re: Help with copy protected CD rip results

    Your results suggest you likely did get a good rip. Secure or secure with "i" showing it had to reread some frames. I suspect if you play these files, they will not have any problems.

    Ok. But I'm still confused. Many cars can play from an attached iphone, but in that case the music would be on the iphone (one would use itunes to transfer the music files from your computer running...

    Re: Secure Rip Skipping

    depends what kind of error. If secure, dbpa evidently got matching CRCs when it did multiple passes. Are you sure that the CD itself doesn't exhibit this same error when playing via your computer? A...

    PerfectTunes is not a player. Does your car player handle playing songs from a usb drive? Some do. Are you sure the files are on your usb drive. What “program” are you referring to as being...
  18. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    You're welcome. And it can't hurt to flush the cache. As Spoon notes here, using the default 1024 size is always safe:

    Drive Read Cache is important in making sure that previous ripped audio is...
  19. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    But he doesn't advocate for it when the drive doesn't properly implement it. And he certainly doesn't argue that without C2, the AR match is not as good. The AR match is what it is. A match--and...
  20. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    AccurateRip match is so much better test than C2 of a bit perfect rip. I have plenty of CDs I've ripped that did NOT get an AR match, but still ripped as "secure" and play fine (I don't hear any...
  21. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    it's not that the first fails. If the first pass gets an AccurateRip match, then it doesn't need to do anything else. I'd say the one that found the accuraterip match is the good rip. The odds of...
  22. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    As I suspected, with the first drive you had accuraterip matches, so it should have been as fast as burst with only the single pass (that's the correct way secure ripping with AccurateRip works). ...

    Re: How do I suppress repetitions?

    @schmidj has provided an excellent tutorial. Make sure you study this carefully before moving forward.
  24. Re: Looking for advice on glacial, on/off reading pattern with secure ripping

    You didn't mention whether the ripped CD had an ACCURATERIP match or not. If there was an AR match, the speed would in fact be as fast as burst, because it wouldn't need to do the additional passes...
