Hi all,

just got this drive last week. when tried to rip audio CDs (with MusicMatch) the maximum speed was 16x. i tried with AudioCentral (comes with the Easy CD Creator), same thing happened. i checked the DMA settings, and it's enabled. is there any other settings that i should've checked, in order to get the 48x ripping capabilities as stated in drive specs??? the drive doesn't have any problem even can reach 49x. any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Are you ripping and encoding at the same time? 48x can only be achieved when ripping to a wav like with CD DAE

i did choose 192 kbps MP3 format in the Record settings. when i chose WAV, rip speeds reach 36x maximum. never knew 'bout it :) thanx for the reply dhc014. i was wondering, is it possible to increase the speed, or is it good enough???

Don't get too greedy... I remember back in the day when I could only pull of ripping at around 3x on my Pentium 200 with a 40x CD-ROM drive... 16x is a good speed. :lol:

You already checked DMA, so the only thing that could make ripping faster would be to get a faster processor so that it could encode faster...
