Brilliant - I can finally help someone. I was fiddling around with
CdParanoia the other day:
Try "-Z". This should disable any checking that CdParanoia normally does.
I have a 24x (read) IDE CD burner and a 6x SCSI DVD drive, and they both
rip at roughly 10 times normal speed when run with this option.
This is the same speed as the copying software that came with the burner
(at "full speed") rips at under Windows, so I can only assume this asks
the drive to go flat out.
