grip (possible other CD writing/riping tools also) ripping really slow.

I install grip and was going to rip a music CD and encode it to ogg.
When I'm ripping it says 'Rip: Trk 2 (5.0x)' , isn't is suppose to be more like 32x or 52x? I'm not very experienced with CD writers. It says on my CD-RW '52x32x52'.

If I got to the Hardware Browser my CD device is called CD-RW CR52, device: /dev/hdc

Is it just normal ripping speed or is it to slow? If it is slow, what might be causing it and what log files or conf files could I show here to get better help?

And oh btw encode starts of really slow and then it just becomes idle..

The speeds you see on readers/writers refer to
DATA cd's ... 5x for audio extraction isn't too
shabby at all ...

Okay than that's okay but when I'm encoding, it's at 0.1x and then it becomes idle and then it's just done or something, but I never saw 100% encoding done, just 0.46% , when I try to play the ogg files they play but there is no sound at all, I have tryed everything in the volume controle, it's not that..

Okay... I don't think it's the encoding that's wrong, I tryed ripping just to wav and then play it, the same happens, there is just a little information at the beginning of the file and then there is just no information or at least xmms doesn't show that there is any music to play it just plays the file.. you know the little thing in the cornet, it doesn't show any audio but the file is playing none the less.

I have a similar problem with Grip. It won't rip at all. The indicator goes quickly through the tracks "Rip: Trk 3 (0.0x)" , there's no movement in the indicator bar and no .wav files are recorded.

I've tried re-installing and unchecking everything that's not strictly needed, with no success. Grip plays the CD ok, but won't rip it. I had a look at the bug report on Sourceforge, but found nothing relevant. I also got the impression there's not much activity from the author (no criticism, just observation). Anyone have any experience of the problem?

Did you guys try to disable paranoia? Go to config > rip.
