Default What Are Your DBpoweramp Settings?

I just downloaded DBpoweramp for my Mac to RIP CD's. Just tried ripping the MQA CD's I just purchased and getting errors on a couple of the tracks.

I'm using the "Ripping Method" settings "Secure (Recover Errors)" When I change to "Burst (Fastest Ripping, No Error Recovery)" all is good.

The CD's themselves appear to be perfect. No scratches or scuffs.

Paul-

While I am not an expert, I set the recovery errors to 160 with a max time of 20 minutes.
If there are more, I'm not interested in the rip. Sometimes, using a different CD ROM will rip better. I use a 2008 MacPro with a newly installed DVD as well as a portable usb plug as a back up. Also, cleaning the CD with a bit of Windex can help.

My rips are CD's, 44.1 many borrowed from public libraries and some are messy. Always listen. A few errors may not be noticeable.

Thanks John!!

I replaced the USB cable and all is good.

I ripped a CD using dbpoweramp twice, one with a single fast pass and a second using multiple passes. If there was a difference I could not tell them apart. I now go with lossless Level 1, unless there is a major issue.

Ran DBpoweramp for the first time last evening and couldn't be more pleased (well....... maybe if it would take the CD out of the jewel case and load & unload into the drive for me ). It wouldn't error-check on the first CD (likely not in the error-check library) but did fine on the second. Re-ran the first CD and all was well from there forward. Down to start ripping and downloading FLAC files into my DAP.

Thanks Dan.....I'm using the same settings. My problem earlier was with the USB cable. When I replaced it all went well.

I use the same settings as Dan, running on a Mac Air. I used to use an Apple cd drive but would get the occasional error and finally switched to a Samsung external drive, which has been error-free. Not all disc drives are created equal.
