With no error checking I get a x5 speed rip with sound juicer.  In
Realplayer under windows on the same machine I get x5 with error
checking.  Without error checking, well the CD spins up and goes mad.

This is the same machine set up to dual boot windows and ubuntu, so
there should be no difference really.

Has anyone got a better fix than remvoing the error checking?

As a side note, my CD does spin up to a fast speed in Soundjuicer, but
after about a couple of seconds it drops down again.  What is doing
this change in speed?
