I tried asking this question on the audio forum and got nowhere, so I thought I'd try here.
I have an LTD163 reader and an LTR32123 burner in my primary box (see sig). I have another older box (Athlon 750) with a Plextor 40x SCSI reader and an old Yamaha 6x SCSI burner.
On both boxes, using EAC, properly set up for the respective hardware, the Plexi reader rips audio significantly faster than the Litey. The Plexi rips at about 16x and the Litey at about 3 to 4x. Both are ripping in secure mode. Why is the Litey so much slower? In Nero CD Speed, the Litey rips at up to 50x peak, yet it's slow as hell in EAC secure mode. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Thanks!!
