Ripping with Cdex

Hello, Just wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem...

I have an Iomega external Cd burner 24,10,40. Been trying to use it to Rip some CDs with CDex but so far CDex won't even detect the drive. Is it because it's connected to the USB port?

note: I use winXP Pro edition on a P-II laptop

Does the laptop have a built in cdrom?? Because unless its usb2.0 (and you have a usb2.0 controller) it will be hellishly slow for ripping cd's.

As for the problem with it not recognising the drive, i'd say it would most likely be because its a usb drive.

Yeah I bought this new PCMCIA USB 2.0 ports so t can rip at higher speeds. I really want to use the Iomega's speed coz the CD-rom that came with the puter can only rip at 4x speed whilst iomega can rip at 32x

Does the drive show up in explorer? If it does, does it work with other programs? Do you have the latest version of cdex?

It shows in explorer. I've tried it with WMP it works if you rip with that but I don't want my music in WMA.

Other ripper I've tried like DAE, Audiograbber doesn't seem to work either though.

Any ideas why this might be?

oh and also I've used the latest CDex still no luck (5 beta 4 )

Just checked the cdex website, and it seems that it only supports ide and scsi cd drives. It makes no mention of external drives. The faq didnt mention anything either.

It might be worth contacting them to see if it is supported.

Also try EAC (can't remember the link offhand - do a google search) - there's some things it does better than CDex, and others it makes more complicated. Swings and roundabouts, but you may find it works with your drive.

yes, be absolutely sure you have aspi installed. winxp doesnt come with it, so you will need to download it. Here's what you should do.

Download aspi from here:
http://web2.iadfw.net/jlundy/zip/Ad******SPIXP460.zip

Install that and reboot you comp. Then try again, everything should work then.
