Thread: Insanely Slow Drive when using Secure Mode

  1. #1

    Insanely Slow Drive when using Secure Mode

    Basics
    ASRock FM2a88m Extreme 4+ Mainboard
    AMD 3.8gHz QuadCore chip
    16GB DDR3 RAM
    Windows 10 Pro, up-to-date


    CD Ripper Info:

    Manufacturer: HL-DT-ST
    CD Drive: DVDRAM GH24NSC0
    Firmware: LK00
    Serial: A065208 KB1F1T90204
    Maximum Speed: 8467 KB/sec (x47)
    Current Speed: 7056 KB/sec (x40)
    Spin-down After: Never
    Buffer Size: 512 KB
    Accurate Stream: Yes
    C2 Error Pointers: Yes
    Reads ISRC: Yes
    Reads UPC: Yes

    Secure Settings - AccurateRip verified

    UltraSecure - not enabled
    Individual Bad Frames
    Max Re-Reads 34 times
    Set Drive Speed Maximum
    Drive Read Cache 43KB (Detected)
    Clear Read Cache with FUA - Enabled (Detected)
    C2 Error Pointers - Enabled (Detected)

    Secure Rip Abort
    After Unrecoverable Frames 50 frames
    When Have to Re-Rip 100 frames
    After Ripping a Track for 30 minutes

    DSP:
    ReplayGain
    Delete Destination File on Error

    Recording a disc to FLAC or 256K (Average) bitrate takes about 2 minutes in Burst Mode
    The same disc to FLAC or MP3 takes 2 hours, 49 minutes in Secure Mode

    CPU usage varies from 2%-20%, with CDGrab consistently showing 0% in the TaskManager. Edge, Firefox, and OneDrive spike it to 20% now and then.

    Each track results in a log entry similar to this:

    Information ripping to mp3 (Lame), 'Track 1' to 'E:\Music\100 - MP3 Rips\Tom Cochrane\Songs of a Circling Spirit\Tom Cochrane - Songs of a Circling Spirit - 01 - Lunatic Fringe.mp3'
    Track 1: Ripped LBA 0 to 20919 (4:38) in 17:42. Filename: E:\Users\Todd\Collection\Music\100 - MP3 Rips\Tom Cochrane\Songs of a Circling Spirit\Tom Cochrane - Songs of a Circling Spirit - 01 - Lunatic Fringe.mp3
    AccurateRip: Inaccurate (confidence 5) Secure [Pass 1]
    CRC32: 1ED13E0C AccurateRip CRC: 642962EE (CRCv2) [DiscID: 012-0018d38d-00edf586-b3115c0d-1]

    Each song is listed as inaccurate, and the recording rate is pegged at 0.3x. This is true across multiple discs. Any optimization tips are welcome, or do I just have a POS drive?

    Disable c2 pointers.

    That did the trick - getting about 5-6x secure recording now. I don't know squat about C2 pointers, so I figured I'd let the program detect it. Won't be doing that again.
