Question about speed when ripping with EAC 2019-04-30 08:31:34 Hello. I’m ripping with EAC, secure mode and test and copy with a usb connected external drive to my laptop. One strange thing that I noted while ripping is that the speed changes a lot between different rips (cds in good conditions, without major problems). If I have to rip three cds, I turn on my laptop and open eac, then with the first cd that I rip the speed is between 3.5x and 5x and it takes me about 30 minutes to test and copy a cd that is about 40 min. long. Then, with the second and third cd the speed is reduced to 1.3x or little more, but usually well under 2.0x. It’s always the same, the first cd takes one third of the time compared to the others. Even detecting gaps and creating a cue sheet is faster. I didn’t change the settings, both error recovery quality and extraction and compression priority are set to “high”. There’s no difference between cds that are in the accuraterip database or not, the only difference is between the first one and the others. Thanks.
