I used the instructions stickied in this forum. I'm very new to EAC and FLAC. I was trying my first CD out for archival purposes. For some reason on track 3 of this CD, speed slowed down to 0.0X and it's telling me the estimated time remaining is 2 hours. The CD is virtually scratch-free, and this is a new computer. The drive is Lite-On SH-16A7S, so it's just an ordinary DVD-RW drive, but I doubt it's supposed to go this slow. Can somebody help me find out what's wrong?

Newer Lite-Ons have a feature that when "reading" an audio cd, it sets the drive speed max to 2x (or so), this keeps the drive noise low, which is helpful when listening to CDs.

Unfortunately this affects EAC's Secure Mode, Burst Mode works great. I've heard the setting in EAC, spin up drive to etc....4x works in fixing this, but I haven't tried this myself. Test it out and let us know.

Also, it could be an ASPI problem, change the ASPI settings in EAC and test that out.
