For me, no, the CD's are fine, no scratches...
I just tried 'grip' and could not get it to see a CD in the drive - it
would not even eject the draw ?
-- What my posting is trying to say is - is there a problem in 'readcd' ? I believe this is what x-cd-roast is using to RIP the CD when not in paranoia mode. When it uses 'cdparanoia', all is well (but slower than I would expect). John. _________________________________________________________________ It's fast, it's easy and it's free.
