    recurring idea? simultaneous copies

    Win10

    Hello, I have the idea of copying several hundred cds from a media library and to look for solutions I got 4 usb cd players for my laptop, 5 in total.
    And I come to this program among others.
    QUESTION: How to copy the cds simultaneously at the same time? Thanks to the batch I suppose but how?

    You cannot. How are you going to load 5 disks simultanously? With a laptop I gather you have them on USB cables. Lot of data to be pushing at once down the bus. I am only using 2 drives (real ones, not the flimsy laptop horrors)and each is on the USB bus but also each is on it's own power (supplied by warts, not the bus). I rarely rip an entire disk anymore but just grab the tracks I actually want to listen to. This is time consuming and I use a macro to handle certain detils the program does not support. I'm using a cheap and compact desktop off amazon with the drives stuck on top with velcro. Still selecting tracks is slow yet I can't keep up when I want 2 tracks off this disk and 5 off another. Even when I do rip a stack of full disks things get pretty busy. I suggest evaluating your entire workflow if you want the best throughput.

    You can have multiple instances of dbpa CD Ripper running on your computer at the same time (just start the program running multiple times). Just start 5 different instances running, and select the individual drives in each instance. Frankly, I found this a bit too confusing, as I also spent a lot of time making sure my metadata and artwork was correct and as I desired. I ripped over 5,000 CDs, one CD at a time and it wasn't that bad. I could easily rip 50 CDs a day while doing other things on the computer.

    this thread will have some very useful info for you:
