Re: CD's from the 80's not ripping?

When CD's first came out in the early 80's, manufacturers said they would last 100 years, however that was wishful thinking. CD's manufactured in the 80's only last 20-25 years before the adhesives start breaking down, making the CD unreadable. It's possible yours have already started to break down...

Re: Max 0.8.1 -- funky behavior of disc number fields

> - upon recognition of a CD, fields display as "disc 1 of ?" with 1 and ? in grey

I also see this behavior with Max 0.8.1 in 10.5.4.

Hooray! Thanks to sbooth for his diligence in solving this problem. Max is my favorite and IMO the VERY best at what it does on the Mac platform.

I used 0.6.1 to convert from flac to aiff, with default settings for output. My file got saved in Music, as it should, but with the name -1.flac, This seems a very odd name. This is the default behavior in OS X when an application saves a file to disk and another file with the same name already exi...

I've experienced the white noise problem with one CD I encoded to mp3 using Max 0.5.6.

Installed Max 0.6.1 on a new MacBook I have lying around and it worked just fine out of the gate. Now I'm really perplexed.

The windowing behavior you describe is normal. The "broken" auto-eject behavior isn't, however.

One other thing: During my most recent trials, Max spontaneously unmounted my internal drive and wouldn't allow me to eject a CD from the external drive!

I'm wondering if there is "something" about having now used paranoia that has cleared up the problem - some cache, preference, whatever, that once paranoia is called, switching back to comparison is no longer a problem. I used AppZapper to remove all Max-related files before reinstalling 0.6.1, and...

So possibly 0.6.1 would have worked fine with paranoia selected instead of comparison. If so, the problem was the comparison ripping, which does not include any error correction (yet) as you may have read in other topics here. Also, if I did understand this correctly, the comparison ripping will no...

Comparison was selected in Preferences.

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 nev...
