What external DVD drive is good for losses CD ripping?
With my current drive (Memorex MRX-650LE V7) I have had issues with 2 recent rips where there is a timing issue at 00:10:00 or 00:10:00-00:12:00. I have had this issue with Traces and the 1991 Foreigner 4 release (original tape remaster) with Foreigner 4 having the issue at 00:10:00-00:12:00 and Traces at 00:10:00. Some of my other rips may have this issue, but I am only covering the recent ones as I have noticed this persist since Traces. I use this drive in conjunction with Exact Audio Copy.
The track on Foreigner 4 that was affected (Night Life) doesn’t have an issue I can detect as this would be very visible since I rip in WAV 16 44,100Hz quality so I believe the drive is wearing out or it’s fine, but no longer reliable for consistent CD ripping.
Is there any way I can bring this drive back into calibration or is it sound like my days of using it for CD ripping are over but as a general use drive, I’m okay? I have tried detecting the features of the drive (which also reports if it is accurate after, which it is) in some hope this fixes the problem.
