XLD on Mac with drive speed control


Recommended Posts

Does somebody know how it works?

 

I've set the drive speed control (preferences>CD rip>Drive speed control) to 'Limit to 4x' (instead of automatic) but the ripping is done by approximately 10 to 12 x.

 

I thought I limited the cd ripping process to 4x though.

 

It doesn't matter if I set the ripper mode to CD Paranoia or XLD secure ripper.

On at least one drive I owned, slower speed increased the error rate.  

 

In any event, the "XLD Secure Ripper" mode reports any read errors, plus you get a report of whether the rip matches the AccurateRip database, so I would use the highest speed of your drive unless either of those reports an error.

Ok, I don't think it mustn't be to slow, but also not to high (therefore I just wanted it to control myself). I know you get a logfile after ripping (which tells you if there where errors or not).

Use of the AccurateRip feature mentioned by Bob is a better way to determine if the rip matches the data on the cd

Everything matters... when brewing coffee.
