Thread: Can't set CD ROM Ripping Speed any more.

  1. #1

    Can't set CD ROM Ripping Speed any more.

    When I rip a CD, I usually leave the CR ROM Ripping Speed set to (Maximum). Every once in a while - particularly for a long CD - the last track or two will rip inaccurately. I can usually fix this be setting the CD ROM Ripping Speed to a slower speed.

    Not long ago, I upgraded to version 16.5 of dBpoweramp. Everything has been fine, but today I tried to rip a long CD and the last track ripped inaccurately. When I went to try to lower the Ripping Speed, the CD Ripper wouldn't let me - the drop down only showed "(Maximum)". This was true both for my DVD-ROM (ATAPI iHDS118 5) and my DVD-RW (LITE-ON DVDRW SHM-165H6S).

    I'm running Windows 7 (as I have been for the last seven years), and the drives are the same as when I could set the speed.

    Why can't I set my Ripping Speed lower now?

    Which ripping method are you using? (CD Ripper >> options button >> cd ripper options), down the list under 'communication'

    It says "Windows Internal".

    I've never noticed this parameter before. I changed it to "SCSI Pass Through (SPT)", and I was able to change the speed.

    Is this a new setting?

    It should be set to SCSI Pass through

    Re: Can't set CD ROM Ripping Speed any more.

    I would like to be able to reduce the ripping speed of my drive (Pioneer BD-RW BDR-2209/BDR-209UBK/BDR-209M - different model numbers for the same drive) for the same reason as IndyBaird above. I'm running release 16.6 of dBpoweramp. When I try to change the speed for my drive my only options are "Maximum" or "X125" (I seem to recall this was "X40" under release 16.5). In any case, setting it to X125 doesn't reduce the speed of the drive. My drive communication options are "SCSI Pass Through (SPT), Windows Internal (For Limited Accounts), or SCSI Pass Through Read (D8)" If I set it to "SCSI Pass Through Read (D8)", it makes several Ultra Secure passes and then produces a Secure rip, but it doesn't use the AccurateRip database cross-checking. I have it set to "SCSI Pass Through (SPT)" and it rips normally (including using AccurateRip), but I'm unable to reduce the rip speed when I need to. Can anyone offer any advice for me? Thanks.

    Modern drives rip more accurately at higher speeds, if you slow a modern drive you will get more errors.

    And yet consistently, if I can get the drive to slow down (like to 4X or 8X), it will most often accurately rip a track that it can't accurately rip at full speed (40X or 42X). I have observed this with two samples of the same model drive. As IndyBaird noted, this often happens on the last one or two tracks on the CD. It's a pity that I can't control the speed at will - as it is, I have to keep trying multiple rips until I get lucky and the drive decides to rip at a slower speed. I'd say this eliminates the errors in about half of the CDs that rip with errors at full speed.
