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

I use CD Reader and it doesn't affect the extraction speed of my drives. It is set to 4x, and I can extract at full speed (18x) in EAC after using it.
Doesn't eject/close the tray reinitialize the ripping speed ? What drive is it ? The ripping program should reset the ripping speed itself.
