I seem to be having terrible performance in EAC backing up audio cds.
Heres some setup info:
In EAC v0.95 pb4:
General Options - Interface tab
Native win32 interface for Win NT/2000/XP
Drive options - Extraction method
Drive Caches audio data
Basically, it limps along in ripping any cd I have, at about 1.2 x. The drive whirls up every 30 secs or so. A 2 minute song seems to take about 3 min to rip.
I know this isn't right. My ancient Pioneer 32x CD-ROM used to rip swiftly enough at about 8x. Something I am concerned with is that with cds and dvds it tends to make a soft "tsk, tsk, tsk" sound for a few seconds when speeding up. Side note, it seems to burn and read dvds fine.
Any ideas what the issue might be? THanks.
