Thread: CDs that will not Rip

  1. #1

    Post CDs that will not Rip

    So far my ripping of my CD collection has been going well: however, there are a number of CDs - Led Zeppelin, Eagles which the CD Ripper cannot / does not rip. Is there a way around this?

    Hi Ashley,

    Do you mean that nothing happens when you start the rip (ie. nothing happens in the [%] progress-bar); or that you receive an 'error' message?

    Good afternoon Paul,

    Apologies for delay in responding. I have just tried to rip Hotel California by The Eagles and CD Ripper screen is showing nothing as if I had just opened it.

    Hi Ashley,

    This has happened to me only once out of circa 400 CDs, to date. If I remember correctly, it was due to the 'write protection' properties of the disc (the topic was of last year and I can not locate the particular thread).

    Cheers,

    Paul

    ... do you have 'Illustrate' installed on another machine? (ie. a multi-license pack).

    Hi Ashley,

    Does the CD spin up in the drive and attempt to read the TOC?

    do you have more than one optical drive attached to your computer. I have two attached, and often put in a CD and forget that I have dbpa set to use the OTHER drive.

    No. It stutters for a bit but that is all
