    taking forever to rip under Windows 8

    I'm ripping CDs to FLAC files (fastest setting) under Windows 8 on my brand new super fast PC (i7 4770, 4 ghz) but DBAudioConverter is taking FOREVER.

    It hangs on either the 2nd pass or re-rip on the last 3 or 4 tracks.

    Is this a known problem or do I not have things set up correctly?

    Set the encoder to 'Test Conversion' and the ripping mode to 'Burst', does it rip fast on that problem disc?

    thanks for the reply. Though, where exactly do I access the encoder to 'Test Conversion' and the ripping mode to 'Burst'? What menu? Where?

    CD Ripper, the encoder you choose is on the encoder tab.

    Ripping mode to burst, click the options button.

    II found the test option but could not find the Burst mode under the Options button. All the options I had there were Ripping priority.Normal>below normal>Idle.

    Click the main button, not the down arrow for options.

    It made it through with those settings. I'm attempting another rip to FLAC using the BURST mode instead of secure....Seems to go faster and not get stuck like before. Just curious. What are the recommended settings? I have about 600 more CDs to rip...

    You need to find which secure option is causing it to be very slow (perhaps overread is checked? or c2 pointers? ultra can be disabled).

    Looks good, it should not rip slow with those settings.
