Last night I was trying to rip a CD (2nd disc of Dj Shadow’s - The Private Press) and EAC froze. Ever since that point, it freezes every time I start the program.
I have a Lite-ON 16A7S and I’ve tried switching SATA ports on my ASUS P5B-Deluxe, but that didn’t fix it. I’ve also deleted the drive and reinstalled it, and tried deleting the “timingAllowed” keys in the registry to reset DMA, but neither has helped. The drive is listed as working correctly in the Intel Matrix Storage Manager, and I can play CD’s in WinAMP. I can’t, however, do anything in Exact Audio Copy. This only started last night and I haven’t had a problem with EAC and this drive before.
Could it possibly be the latest update to Nero 7 that I installed? Any other ideas?
