when grabbing audio cd's, I never saw more than appr. 4x speed. I tried kaudiocreator and abcde with my CD-burner and my DVD-reader device.
The encoding performance seems to be good, it is relly the grabbing part.
I think hdparm looks fine:
IO_support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 1 (on)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 256 (on)
HDIO_GETGEO failed: Invalid argument
Musicmatch, a windows tool, brings much more speed (starting 4x raising continously until end of track). If possible, I don't want to boot windows only to grab some CD's :-)
Does anyone know, how to speed things up?
Thanks a lot,
