thanks for valuable information Truman and spath.
the purpose for me is probably more mechanical rather than anything else. as i was trying to figure how much purpose/usefullness the display of the ripping speed from cd to hardrive was. and if the software was reporting correct values or not.
but this does not look like an easy task to evaluate, given what you have said so far i would have to know all the inns and outs of my cd drive and firmware information. so i am guessing accurate results or testing for this type of thing may be rendered not reliable and even not a desired thing to do
i just needed to be able to work out also how to tell this to others that ask these questions. “thus the mechanical” reasons why i am asking.
having said that it makes more sense now. and i might sift through some of your audio forums and point people to the discussions on this type of topic so they can decide for themselves. it’s just that quite often a developer can be blamed for something he really has no control over. but to explain that to the end user isn’t always an easy task either.
well gentlemen thank you for your time, i appreciate it!
