    Re: CD not in AR, yet some tracks are?

    Another thought, your disc 5 may be a different, newer (or uncommon) pressing of the CD. When the record company needs to press more CDs, they usually have to make a new "glass master" to make more...

    Re: Music Converter & CD Ripper id tag issue

  14. 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...
