    Going to do some diagnostics but to aide me, how do your processors perform when ripping with sonic Stage?

    Mine seem to top out!!!

    Could be a number of factors, this I know, but guess we aint all running the same build so would appreciate the feedback.

    Yeah mine tops out but that's what you would expect anyway with CPU intensive tasks, faster your machine faster you'll rip.

    Does it not depend on your dc/dvd drive too?

    no! cause it's not the reading or the writing process that is topping your cpu out but the ripping itself and that's what the cpu does! Don't worry, there's no application like sonic stage or i-tunes out there that wouldn't bring the same effect while ripping you music.

    Agreed, this is pretty common when ripping.

    How about memory use? I have noticed that it doesn't always release the memory after ripping a CD, so if you are having a long rip session (oh err), the memory fills up and up!!

    I'm ripping it onto my minidisc from cd with no probs to my pc at all. It's not the highest spec - 1.5 centrino laptop with internal and external dvd drives. But i'm able to rip a disc whilst doing other things without any lag - even be on the internet and/or use my sound editor to turn mp3s into ringtones for my phone - all at the same time.

    are you connected with a usb 2.0 port/hub rather than a 1.1? :suicide:

    it's no problem ripping music while doing other stuff as well, it just slows down either the ripping process or the other things you're doin 'cause it will split the cpu power. you can give this process a priority in the task manager to make sure that it won't use the cpu to the limit.

    I'm able to multitask, I have 1GB RAM. I don't use USB as I am only ripping the CD and not uploading to the device.

    My question was more related to the possibility that Sonicstage is leaking!
