I'm a total newbie on this forum, this is my first post, so I don't know if I'm posting this in the right section. If not, please move it, and accept my apologies smile.gif.

I'm having trouble with the following: When I rip a officially purchased, new & clean Audio CD to MP3, I always have pops and clicks during the songs. Approx. 10-15 per CD, which is approx. 1-2 per song. This sounds like only a few, but it's still irritating to me.

I have tried the following programs to rip the CD:
- CDex
- iTunes 6
- Windows Media Player 10
- CD-DA Extractor 8.2
- Winamp 5
- EAC (with a special guide, to configure it, using Lame 3.96)

My computer is quite new, Pentium IV 3 Ghz, 1 GB of RAM-memory, a cd/dvd-romplayer and a cd/dvd-burner:

Player: ASUS DVD-E616P2
Burner: BENQ DVD DD DW1620

I tried both the burner and the player to rip a CD, but it still doesn't work. I also upgraded the firmware for the player, to the newest version, still no result.

Can you tell me what else I can do, to fix this? Every suggestion is much appreciated.

Thank you!

Regards from a newbie from the Netherlands,

Koen

Tahnru: I've experimented with AccurateRip, and some tracks are ripped accurate and some not. For example: tracks from David Gray's new album, Life In Slow Motion, are all *not* accurate. I ripped several tracks from Morning Glory and Howie Day's Stop All The World Now and these are all accurate.

EDIT: Saw rule number 9, I will create 30-sec clips smile.gif.

I hope this is ok smile.gif.

I don't want to seem too anal, but doesn't this violate TOS #9?

Think your right, I will create 30-sec. clips

EDIT: Yesterday my computer crashed suddenly. It looks like it's the motherboard that stopped working. I will get this fixed, but it might take a week or so. I will be back at this topic when everything's up and running again. Thanks for all the help you already handed! It's much appreciated.
