    Good definition. It seems to me to infer that sometimes encoding doesn't start immediately, but sits at 0% for a few seconds, or maybe tens of seconds, and then runs. Am I correct?

    No. It hangs by my definition. It sits at 0% for minutes until I kill it.

    Re: Can't Rip a Complete CD Without Hanging

    My experience:

    1. A track is ripped.

    2a.
    • For that track, the Rip Status column displays, e.g., CPU2 Encoding x%, where x is a rapidly rising number.
    • At the same time, the next track is being ripped.

    -OR-

    2b.
    • The Rip Status column displays CPU2 Encoding 0%.
    • The CD drive spins down.
    • Within a few seconds, encoding begins.
    • After encoding is complete, the drive spins up and ripping begins on the next track.

    Return to 1.

    -------------

    Your experience (I assume our steps 1 and 2a are the same):

    2b.
    • The Rip Status column displays CPU2 Encoding 0% and doesn't change. Ever.
    • Ripping immediately begins on the next track.

    Return to 1.

    Have I gotten this right?

    -------------

    So. Encoding occasionally pauses momentarily for me, whereas it occasionally refuses to run at all for you. We're running the same version of CD Ripper on different CPUs and Windows versions.

    Very interesting behavior. (Read: I don't have a clue.) I sure hope Spoon and Peter can find the answer.

    Usually, the encoding moves along while the next track starts ripping. There can be multiple tracks encoding using the four CPUs. Typically for me, one to three tracks hang during encoding on any given CD. (Sometimes, it completes without a problem.) Whether a track hangs or not, the next track usually starts right away after a track completes the ripping cycle.

    If you change the encoder, and not use any dsp effects, does that help?

    If you mean change the encoder to single thread, no. I do not use any DSP effects. In the CD ROM settings, I see that Sample Offset is set to +6. I don't recall changing it. I've assumed it was set by the software. Could this have an impact. Regarding the encoder setting, I do rip to two encoders (mp3 & Apple Lossless) with path & filename settings using Dynamic Naming.

    I ran four or five tests. The last two were with mp3 encoding and targeting my usual drives. The very last run hung. It would take more tests to confirm. Why would it be WAV make a difference? Encoding, but no compression?

    Because it encodes without pipes. m4a and mp3 use STDIO pipes.

    Thanks for your help Spoon & Jailhouse. Not sure what I'll do. I will probably move my library to a local disk for other reasons. Other than that, I guess I'll just have to re-rip the failures. Hope ya'll have a great 2018!!!!
