I have 2 boxen, both Athlons. One has a Plextor 40x Ultraplex SCSI drive and it rips audio with EAC like there is no tomorrow. Like at 16x speed.
The other box has a LiteOn LTD163 DVD drive, and it rips audio with EAC rather slowly at about 3x.
I believe I have set up EAC correctly on both machines. DMA is enabled on the box with the Liteys. Both are ripping in secure mode. Using NERO CDSpeed, the Liteon 163 rips at peak speeds of over 50x.
Whassup here? Why is the Liteon 163 so much slower than the Plexi? What have I overlooked? Thanks.
