    Re: Music Converter & CD Ripper id tag issue

    Yes, as Dat said, this has nothing to do with any software apps that you are running. This is all part of the "dumbing down" of Windows, particularly Windows 10. Microsoft, in its infinite(ly...
  3. Re: IDE Drive Adaptor Recommendation - SATA or USB

    The original Molex connector is a pretty crappy, unreliable connector, but it is cheap, hence why it was used in PC power systems. The crimp pins aren't crimped that solidly, it isn't very hard for...
  4. Re: IDE Drive Adaptor Recommendation - SATA or USB

    I've used several different adapters over the years (they sometimes don't work when you knock the drive on the floor and break the SATA connector off...) Mostly VANTEC, because they were what Micro...

  7. Re: General Questions about CD-Ripping Programs

    To answer your questions:

    FLAC and other "lossless" codecs store a file which (if the CD is ripped without error) can be played as a bit accurate copy of the original data on the CD. You can also...

    Re: Trying to understand playlists

    A playlist is nothing more than a list of items to be "played". The Trinidadian steelband I help(ed before COVID...) at their gigs prepared a list of songs to be played in order at a gig. Typed on...
  9. Re: Problem ripping to FLAC on a few CDs: Extremely faint vocals.

    Karaoke DSP in its simplest form takes advantage of the practices most engineers use in making a pop record. Most lead singers are recorded using a single microphone, creating a monophonic track. ...
