Another ripping yarn^H^H^H^H question - I have two CD drives, a 32x IDE (cat
/proc/ide/ide1/hdc/model shows CD-532E-B, buggered if I know what brand it
is without taking the lid off) and a 4x6x16 Yamaha CRW6416S SCSI burner. I'm
trying to maximise my ripping speed and by specifying -S 16 to cdparanoia
for the SCSI CD I get a 4:53 track ripped in 1:40 - in fact, I get this
speed even if I don't specify a speed.
However, with the IDE CD, no matter what speed I specify (I've tried
nothing, 16 and 32) it takes 6:45 to rip a 4:49 track. What's the problem
here ? Is it that my IDE drive can only provide CDDA access at one speed -
dead slow ? Is this a general problem with IDE drives ?
