0.6 wont read CD TOC - SOLVED

Post by sketchy » Tue May 30, 2006 5:20 pm

Hi

Anyone else got this problem?

I put a CD in and get an alert that Max can't read disk3 (Toshiba XM-6402B CD-ROM) or disk4 (Pioneer DVR-104) depending on which drive the CD is in.

0.5.x seems to have no problem.

I keep getting the error message "An error occurred on device disk3. Unable to eject the disc." Of 4 discs I've ripped (using secure mode) so far, 3 have given me the error. I'm using an Intel iMac with the OEM internal SuperDrive.

I don't get the message until the final track is being ripped. I'm not sure if this is the same as the issue you're having.

I wish I could get that far, but I get an error when the disc is read and get no further.

Given that others are clearly getting much better results, I'm guessing that this is some sort of problem relating to my system or a conflict with other software. Any clue to what that may be would be most appreciated.

btw, system is

Dual G4 1.25GHz
1Gb
10.4.6
3 HD
2 Optical (models previously given)

Yes, I have the exact same problem (disk2 and disk3 on my system -- see graphic below). I tried futzing with preference settings, to no avail. 0.5.6 worked with no problems at all on my system.

The way that discs are read changed from 0.5.6 to 0.6, which may be causing problems for some people, although I've no idea why.

Do you have this problem with all discs or only some?

It seems to affect every disc I insert, including non-music CDs. Deleting Max's plist file does not solve the problem.

My info:

- 2.0 GHz DP Power Mac G5
- OS: 10.4.6
- 2.5 GB RAM installed
- Internal drive: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-107D
- External drive: PLEXTOR DVDR PX-712A (via FireWire 400)

I'm getting totally random, but consistent, inability to read. Of 10 discs I randomly chose (all pristine on the surface and easily read by Finder, iTunes, xACT, etc.) 2 were repeatedly unable to be read. Of the 8 that were read, 2 took more than 20 secs. to be read.

FWIW,

Thank god, it's not just me :wink:

I've only tried audio CDs but I get the message for every one that I have tried, as mentioned 0.5.6 has no problems (well apart from intermittent FreeDB lookup errors and crashes on random lookups).

I am having problems as well ripping some CD's. Granted they have a decent amount of scratches on them. However I was able to rip them fine on my iMac G5 with earlier versions of Max, but they are a having troubles with Max 0.6 on my Macbook.

When I run Max I am unable to duplicate the TOC problems.

Interestingly, though, when I run Max in the debugger I am able to get the same error message. It's a bit confusing because the file descriptor is valid. I am still trying to figure this one out.

I still have the problem with Max 0.6.1.

I'm back on 0.5.6 now -- no problems whatsoever.

FWIW, in addition to the configuration I listed above, I also have the following installed:

- 2nd internal HD (250 GB)
- ATi Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition (256 MB)
- USB 2.0 PCI card

I figure none of that should make a difference either way, but you never know...

Just wondering: With version 0.6.1, did you use the comparison ripper (new in version 0.6) or did you use paranoia (as in version 0.5.6)?

Comparison was selected in Preferences.
