EXT 1693 - won't rip CD over 2.1x

Hello,

I’ve been reading this GREAT forum for quite a while. I’ve found a lot of useful info about my BenQ 1620 drive.

I’ve been playing with an external 1693S connected via USB2.

I can not get this drive to rip audio CDs [EAC .95 prebeta 5] over 2.1x.

Am I doing something wrong or is this typical of a DVD writer connected via USB2?

It rips DVDs fine and writes great. So, I’m hopefully missing something really obvious here.

Thanks a lot,
Chad
