Ok so I have been using EAC to rip cds for some time now and then encode them with razorlame and both work really well, i have a DELL Lattitude D610 with the Sony DVD.
Last week for some unknown reason the DVD disappeared from the device list. I managed to get it back (not sure how!) but now everytime i go into EAC it hangs, there is nothing shown in the device dropdown.
I have uninstalled EAC a number of times now, both new and old versions and after the software is installed the drive gets picked up and all is well. When i come back the next day EAC hangs straight away!
the drive works quite happily with VLC to play music/films etc its just EAC!
any help or suggestions would be much appreciated, EAC is the best ripper and i dont want to go to an inferior product (my opinion I know)
