    HUGE props to bhoar (and of course, spoon).

    Driver seems to be doing what it's supposed to, working (i think) on one minor issue.

    Thanks!!!! :D

    Just wondering, though the usual answer is yes, if extra RAM helps with dBp. The 7602 only has 512k and I was thinking of upgrading.

    Anyone ever had to open one of these up? Looks like the back panel comes off without disturbing the transport :confused:

    Thoughts?

    Yes.
    - If you use secure ripping, each track may be loaded into memory several times.
    - If you use batch ripping this happens with more than one CD at a time.
    - If a track is long, then the amount of memory used is larger as well.

    i.e. worst case scenario: if you secure rip two single-track 60 minute CDs (e.g. live shows) in parallel, you may need 2.5-3GB of RAM or so to prevent swapping from occuring.

    Of course with the unit you are using, you may be limited to 2GB of RAM expansion - they tend to use the bare minimum requirements for duplicators (though yours may be a bit higher since it was originally a MediaGrabber aka DVD ripping unit).

    I've opened up the non-symmetric layout versions of these. It's kind of a pain in the ass, and easy to pull cables so if you do it, do it slowly, and have a large work area available. Also, guard the robot arm well, it's really easy to be trying to twist the unit, overbalance, and have it come crashing down onto (and destroy) the arm. Uh, don't do that.

    Thanks, once again, bhoar.

    This one will actually support 8GB, though it's XP so it's 3+...and memory is cheap (though I'd pay up to get some of mine back)
