I have a recently purchased Pioneer DVR-216D with firmware v1.09 attached to the onboard Intel SATA on an ASUS P5K-E board. I have noticed that this drive is a total piece of shite when it comes to ripping CD's. I have had a couple of brand new, just opened CD's have ripping problems, and SEVERAL discs in excellent condition (new, but used a couple of times) with the same issue. I get frame re-rips, and finally an accurate rip. I look at the disc surface and can't see anything that should give it an issue. I pop the same disc into my DVR-212D and no problems at all!
Have any of you had problems using the DVR-216D to rip audio?
