Hi , i am having trouble ripping cd's. I mainly use Ashampoo Burning Studio 10 but the same problem happens if i use Itunes or Windows Media player . What happens is that the ripping starts but after 20 seconds or so the progress bar stops and justs sits in the same place. After 5 mins or so the ripping starts again but stops not long after. This repeats many times and eventually the cd is completely ripped. The rip process takes anything up to an hour. Happens no matter to what drive i rip and with all cd's. I am using Windows 7 have a AMD Athlon X2 and have plenty of room on the drives. Any suggestions. Thanks

That's about how long it takes me to rip a c.d. for trades. I use EAC in paranoia mode, to be sure that I get an exact copy of the original. So the ripping process is just like you described. I'm thinking that it's normal, as long as you get an exact copy. (Warning: EAC can be difficult to set up properly)

Doesn't usually take that long if I use iTunes though. So, I don't know. Maybe someone else has a better answer.

Personally, I use Audio Grabber for all my music ripping. It is small and exceeds my CD ripping needs, I have never had a problem with it. However, there are probably better ripping programs out there.
