I've just started using the dBpoweramp, having switched from media monkey secure ripping of all of my files. I had previously tried EAC but one rip took like 5 hours and all were inaccurate. So I ripped some cd's last night and got a little better results. One album had only like 5 songs out of 19 that were inaccurate and insecure.
But then I put in a cd that was brand new and not recognized by the database, and the strangest thing happened. For the last 3 tracks, they were said to be insecure. Yes insecure.Very odd to me.
But it gets weirder, I put in a cd that was fairly scratched but nothing horrible, and let it rip over night, leaving my computer and going to bed. When I came to check it this morning, it had ripped securely with no flaws?!!
So here is my question, Is Sitting next to my computer, or even walking around near my desktop, causing my inaccurate insecure rips? Or do I just have a funky drive? I get about 1-6 insecure inaccurate rips per cd. Avg around 3 per.
My PC is a custom build and my drive is an Optiarc ad-7203a that I pulled from my old gate way because I had it sitting around.
If it is the vibration, does anyone have any recommendations for fixing it? (I have wood floors)
If it is the drive, does anyone one have any drives at a good price that are main stream that they can recommend? (I'm leaning towards the drive as the problem)
