Yes, all that is very… interesting Daniel.
Very “cd/dvd quality” AND (especially) software dependant so (for the adequate excellent error correction & ‘speed’ assured too so)… interesting to know too so(!!). Now… personnally, for audio rips, i exclusively use good “old” & trusty EAC (secure and/or test©, etc)… for almost everything (even burns with perfect cuesheets too now hehe)…i don’t give a (.) to every others rippers… so, if ok with EAc = perfect for me, the rest… i don’t need to curse other (inferior -or at least not better at all… as far the contrary as not been demonstrated so far…) audio softwares so, cool…
As for dvd rippers softwares… that problem with shrink is noticable & interesting too so… … Now, knowing that so, why not give a try to DVD Decrypter now, then ?!?.. . Seems to work very correctly with it apparently(!) :
And for some simili-Shrinks usages, a thing like that is interesting too imo : http://len0xmirror1.serveftp.net/~len0x/tutorial/AutoGK.html before going even deeper with other doom9 very possible other packs so… also based on DVD Decrypter too usually (for ex)…
So, software may be important too then, interesting, yes…(!)
Thks a lot jsl !
Yes, so those numbers are confirming the ones i already saw in the url i gave above so : http://www.digital-inn.de/showthread.php?t=27901 (simply here with a more standard cd audio, longer than just 39’ like in that other thread so… for outer tracks ). those numbers are also confirming the numbers found on the cdfreaks review (for the Philips1640), when they found 11.6x avg (on a 77’ audio cd!!.. maximum outer tracks speeds and then avg too then, obviously) : they did the test with the (in)famous box unchecked obviously so… last tracks rips speeds are similar so. "demonstration done’ so…
as for results with the box ‘checked’ : excellent too so !! (about on par with a Plex Premium etc so… but, here, too, with the exceptionnal and assured perfect compatibility “on the fly” of the BenQ/Philips with ALL the most annoying current (& quickly growing…) cd audio protections too so… those speeds assured with or without the most annoying audio protections so… with correct quality standard cds at least so… now, maybe (much) slower (but perfect rip quality assured too due to the very good native error reading abilities even without C2 so…) with badly scratched ones so, ok… np -correct me if i’m wrong in that ‘conclusion’ here so… ).
As for the reason of the “cache box checked”… i’m not sure i can develop a lot on that here… just one comment though : that is a standard among some “audio communities” nowadays if you see what i mean… yes, that certainly can appear like a (totally stupid/unecessary) pain in the (.) from a distant Point of View so (expecially when your drive has no cache ‘on paper’ like that so…!!), but those settings are just the ones used for maximum security and uniformity among all rips (reason? simple & pragmatical enough too : real C2 and “no cache” abilities (as detected by the quick EAc test…) are very difficult to verify (for a 100% accuracy in practice)… and be sure about… a lot of ‘no cache drives’ claiming they use “no cache” (under EAc quick test…) are proving wrong under Feurio! burning software test for ex!, etc… same for C2 “real” abilities so… very few drives “with” C2 are really accurate using it… so those “communities” decided to be on the safe side so, with those “global” settings so… but yes, those settings can be annoying with the best and very rare & verified hardwares with real “no cache” and “perfect C2 corrections” so, ok!!.. the legendary Plextor DAE quality doesn’t come from nowhere for that too, for exemple… for the connoisseurs… among the very very few to have real excellent and trusty C2 corrections so… for ex… ).
VoilÃ voilÃ … thx!
