Perhaps this is old hat, but I’m trying to trip CDs on my new PX-716SA. I’m using PlexTools Pro to do it (latest version), and all the settings for fast ripping are done (20-48X, SpeedRead, etc.).
However, PlexTools reports I’m only ripping at 6x speed, on average. Is there something I’m missing here? Is this the result of the drive using a SATA interface, and me going through a SATA PCMCIA card? I’ve tested the read/write speeds via this interface on my SATA hard drives, and it’s going pretty much at the Cardbus speed limit (133 M-bytes/sec), so I doubt it’s that.
The Read Transfer Rate test is happily showing a max of around 40x.
Are the speeds reported by PlexTools not related to the actual drive speed?
Very confusing, this.
Also, I was wondering, PlexTools pro doesn’t seem to write ID3V2 tags when I have it using the LAME encoder… it didn’t even write the track number! Anyone else having such problems with it?
