Re: ? for Mac Users

I tried that, but the ripper doesn't work until 1.4b25, a version that was mostly corrupted (now unavailable). b26-28 are 10.3/4 only. (I use 1.4b24 now, but alas can't rip with it)

Re: ? for Mac Users

Evenreven, do you have an external CD or DVD drive ?

Re: ? for Mac Users

I just realised that an external isn't necessary

D/l MissingMediaBurner Insert the disc to be ripped and quit iTunes or any other program that may take possession of the CD.

Open a Terminal window and at the prompt type:

disktool -l

A list of discs will come up (***Disk Appeared ('disk0',Mountpoint = '', fsType = '', volName = '') etc, etc) and you should look for the audio disc in that list, e.g:

***Disk Appeared ('disk1',Mountpoint = '/Volumes/Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground (Single)', fsType = 'cddafs', volName = 'Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground (Single)')

The important bit is 'disk1'.

Now type:

disktool -u disk1 (or, of course, whatever the corresponding identity given in the stage above was)

The audio disc should now dismount after a couple more lines appear.

Now you can start up MissingMediaBurner. With any luck it should be able to find your drive. If it doesn't I'm afraid I can't help you there.

Click the Audio button and then select "Rip Audio Tracks to Wav Files" from the drop down menu at "Choose Function for Audio". Drag your destination folder in when prompted.

It's now very important that you put a check next to "Show Command" before clicking start.

The command that MMB is going to use to rip your disc will now be shown and you need to insert this sequence into the command:

-paranoia -paraopts retries=3

so that it is altered from e.g.

".........IODVDServices/1 ; mv *.wav........"

to:

".........IODVDServices/1 -paranoia -paraopts retries=3 ; mv *.wav........"

Click OK and your disc will be ripped as accurately as with xACT.

If you want something like the EAC log you can copy/paste the bottom part of the Terminal window that will be opened by MMB once it starts ripping:

samplefile size will be 137004044 bytes.
recording 776.6666 seconds stereo with 16 bits @ 44100.0 Hz ->'audio'...
using lib paranoia for reading.
percent_done:
100% track 1 successfully recorded
100% 0 rderr, 0 edge, 0 atom, 0 drop, 0 dup, 0 skip, 0 drift 0 overl
100% track 2 successfully recorded
100% 0 rderr, 0 edge, 0 atom, 0 drop, 0 dup, 0 skip, 0 drift 0 overl
100% track 3 successfully recorded
100% 0 rderr, 0 edge, 0 atom, 0 drop, 0 dup, 0 skip, 0 drift 0 overl

If you'd like the disc/track name to appear in this text it's possible to add a freedb look up to the command but the extracted tracks themselves will still be named track 01 etc.

HTH.

Re: ? for Mac Users

EDIT: "D/l MissingMediaBurner Insert the disc to be burned"

Should read:

"D/l MissingMediaBurner Insert the disc to be RIPPED"

and this bit should have read:

".........IODVDServices/1 ; mv *.wav........"

to:

".........IODVDServices/1 -paranoia -paraopts retries=3 ; mv *.wav........"

but maybe I wasted my time anyway.

Re: ? for Mac Users

I made the changes you mentioned to your above post, ffooky. And, I'm sure this will help someone, just maybe not the original person your wrote it out for.

Re: ? for Mac Users

Wow! Thanks, ffooky!
This looks so in-depth that even I can probably do it. I'm reasonably well-versed with computers in general, but command line still makes me freak out. Maybe I can now try to enter the wonderful world of the Terminal for the first time later today.

Have I ever said that I love this place? If not, I'll say it now!

Re: ? for Mac Users

No worries Evenreven, this should be a reasonably gentle intro into the exciting world of the Terminal as most of the hard work is done by MMB's GUI. MMB does have an "unmount disc" function that would avoid all the disktool stuff but unfortunately it rarely works with audio discs.

It's a shame MMB's coders didn't include the paranoia option out of the box but you shouldn't have too many probs inserting it at the right point in the command line.

If you have problems, copy any error messages and they'll help with troubleshooting.

Best of luck
