I actually sympathize with you Andrew. My gripe is that.. for
whatever reason... CD's don' t always eject when I want them to. Then
I wait around for 5, 10 mins, then I can eject them. That just
doesn't seem like the way it should work....
Anyway... back to your problem about ripping... could it be a problem
with your ripping program? Which one are you using? Are you able to
play the cd as an audio CD without any problems?
