So I’ve been using EAC for a few years. I don’t consider myself an expert user by any means by I know how to use the basic functions of the program, I guess.
Until recently, everything worked with no problems. Now, whenever I try to test a cd for errors or extract a cd into compressed mp3 files (to put on my ipod) the cd rom drive stops and starts over and over again as it is reading each track. Not only is the stopping and starting of the drive annoying to listen to, but sometimes it get “stuck” on a track and will just try to do a “stop and start read” of that track over and over again. Then there will be sync errors. This has happened on brand new, flawless discs that I have bought at the store and discs with no scratches that I extracted with no problems before.
This is really frustrating. Any advice on what is going wrong and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
