Hi, this is strange. Wondering if anyone could shed some light.
I use itunes on my PC which has two DVD drives (one is an NEC DVD/R and the other is a Samsung non-R). Anyway, both are supposedly capable of 48X CD read. When I rip on the NEC in itunes it goes fast at around 17X; a whole CD is thus ripped in about 2.5 minutes. On the other hand, when I rip on the Samsung, which I would prefer to do because I'd like to save the motor on the NEC for burning things only, it imports very slowly at around 3X. My processor also gets very bogged down when I rip from this drive.
Also if there is a better place to post this, I'm all ears.
