Using version 1.95, if I happen to have played a CD with Winamp + CD Reader the default speed (4x) is the limit that some ripping progs will run afterwards. I tried to email the author but his posted email address from the docs and the main site returned as invalid.

Setting CD Reader to maximum and re-opening Winamp on an audio CD is one workaround but not a great one since lower reading speeds using CD Reader is a good way to save wear on CD drives. If the author could be reached I was going to suggest that CD Reader could reset the CD drive speed upon closing Winamp.

I wonder how many people who use CD Reader might have thought their ripper was slow through no fault of its own huh.gif

Thanks for reminding me Volcano. I already had it but completely forgot about it.
Unfortunately using 2.00 beta3 results are pretty much the same.

This is a problem when browsing a CD when both these conditions occur: 1) a ripper lacks digital playback, and 2) drive has no CD-to-soundcard cables connected. Using Winamp + CD Reader works fine except that after Winamp is closed for the extraction process the maximum extraction speed is whatever setting CD Reader used.
