sound juicer ripping speed is stuck at 0.1x

Asked by Peter Larson on 2007-05-14

for some reason the ripping speed on sound juicer is set at 0.1x and i cant figure out how to change it. a 48 minute cd is taking nearly 400 minutes to rip.

Hello !

The ripping speed is automaticaly adjusted ... Maybe your drive's firmware is out-of-date, maybe you have a lot of processes running (preventing Soundjuicer to use CPU), maybe your CD is physicaly damaged, ...

Can you check all these stuffs and post back, please ?

How did you fix it? I have the same problem, but haven't been able to make a dent.

when you go to burn a cd it asks you to specify burning speed, and i had set it really low, so for some reason it wouldnt rip stuff at a decent speed. i think all i did to fix it was put that speed back up where it was supposed to be. im not completely sure, it has been a while, but im pretty sure thats all i changed
