ASUS CD-S520 EAC PROBLEMS

Postby wildjim on Thu Jan 01, 1970 3:15 am

The ASUS is not all it's said to be as it doesn't read protected DISCs and also there seems to be a problem with EAC where it extracts fast the first time but on the second it's a half speed.

I have exhausted most simple solutions and the PC is a Abit KT7A 1.2ghz 512mb memory Windows XP and is dedicated to audio extraction which nothing else runs in the background.

Note a friend is having the same problem but he runs Windows 2000.

All IRQs and common stuff like that are isolated it seems to be a problem between the ASUS and EAC.

Still not impressed with the ASUS I will look for something else in the future. This may serve as a warning to all as the ASUS drive is greatly promoted here; but beware it's real world performance with EAC is somewhat less than great.

Real Solutions are Welcome. . .

Obvious

Postby wildjim on Thu Jan 01, 1970 3:17 am

Gee Flyer22 I thought that I was fairly specific but I see that you have a keen eye for the obvious(man) - What the 22 for IQ? Please try harder.

if anyone out there uses the Asus 52x CDROM drive and EAC, please give your experience - did you experience any difficulties?

This will be a rambling post, maybe not what the exactly what the current discussion entails, but here goes:

I use the Asus 52x with the latest version of EAC (09b4). I am using lame v. 3.92 as the encoder. I am in the process of re-ripping all my cds (the 1st time I did them at 128 kbps and now I am doing them at 192 VBR. Is this necessary? I don't know, but I just feel like doing it. 8)

I have had no problems as far as encoding goes. I believe there are rippers out there that are faster than EAC, but speed is not the most important factor to me. I may be mistaken, as I don't watch the program at work all the time, but I would rather have a slower program that gives better sounding audio than one that rips faster and may have to try and recover from more errors.

I often put a cd in, start up EAC, and use one of my other machines for 15-20 minutes. I will try and check on this within the next few days with some numbers if I can.

BTW, I think ASUS rules, not just the CD-S520, but their mobos as well. I am quite happy with the DVD E-616 as well. Does anyone have any experience with their video cards, GeForce 4 Ti4200, 4400, or 4600?

I cant decide between the asus S520 and the Teac CD552E.
Did anyone test the S520 with badly scratched CD's?
