View Full Version : [ubuntu] CD rippers won't keep drive spinning

June 24th, 2012, 04:51 AM
I've recently tried ripping a CD on my Lenovo ThinkPad using both asunder and rhythmbox and had the same problem with each. While ripping the tracks, the CD drive continually spins up and then down over and over every few seconds. The result is that it takes forever (well over an hour) to rip a 70 minute disc. What is happening here?
