If your speed is faster than 1X PLEASE tell me what I can do to speed mine up!!
(Besides buying more RAM or a faster processor..)

Hello. I am new to the EAC/Flac world and posting on this forum but I have read MANY different set-up guides and related posts. I think I have EAC configured as it should be...

I am getting an average total runtime/speed of 1.3X--factoring in the little time it takes to compress to Flac--This speed drops below 1X! sad.gif

I create CUE Sheet (non-compliant)
TEST and COPY Selected Tracks-Compressed

Example: A 55min CD = 1Hr22min Total

Command Line is set for -6 -V...........................(-8 was even slower)
YES-Accurate Stream
YES-Drive Caches
NO-C2(according to EAC My drive has this and some other website source I came across along the way seconds this)[Am I correct in my understanding that a drives C2 feature is not to be trusted? But with C2 enabled, EAC will read the C2 info. first, and if there are any conflicts EAC will read and re-read the data again and again...until the errors are corrected?] -I tried the whole process with C2 Box checked YES and the speed was more like 2X I like that!

I have set my read offset correction with help of Feurio and AccurateRip

Are there any key settings I might have enabled or disabled that could speed this process up?
I did try the COPY IMAGE and create CUE Sheet Method once and it was much faster!!!!(Maybe 5X)---However, I do not yet understand how to deal with the Image and CUE Sheet--How to make them turn back into individual tracks...

Thaanks for the input and replies.

neutral 00-------I will play around with the speed setting in drive options. I had actually managed to overlook that setting-even after dozens of re-configures and "re-set-ups"__thanks for pointing it out!Mine was(is) set to "Actual" -this was recommended by most if not all set-up guides I came across. Plus, I think this setting only comes into play in Secure Mode..

I have been using "Burst Mode" + "Test & Copy" with good results.
...CRCs match and the .flacs sound great!

When the CRCs do not match -or-
the text Log file says "timing error" or "Copy finished" ("Not Copy OK")I re-rip the problem track in Secure with all the bells and whistles which takes (Alot) longer but ends up 100% in the end.

-------Thanks Martin H
I was pretty sure I read somewhere that Burst Mode + Test and Copy with good/matching CRCs = an accurate rip.
_____I am willing to hear from anyone why this is not a good way to go________________!

>>>The Drive I am using for the process is a Lite-on DVDRW SOHW-832S. It Caches and has C2 ability-I do not use either feature- I leave the info reading to EAC

How much are these magic Plextor Drives anyway?
