I have a 48x CD-ROM read internal drive in my PC with a phenom x6 1100t processor running Windows 7. I can't understand why iTunes only rips CDs at about 5-7x. The processor, RAM and HDD aren't breaking sweat.
This in comparison to my 2009 white MacBook which rips at about 8-15x.
I was wondering if there was a way to increase the speed, I buy a lot of CDs and it is quite irritating. I use the AAC format (320 kbps) and an iPhone so I think I'm stuck with iTunes if I want to maintain music quality, space and compatibility.
Any help would be much appreciated
The drive is a DVD-RW, I was quoting the CD-ROM read speed. The drive is this one: http://www.ebuyer.com/268621-samsung-sh-222ab-22x-dvd-rw-dl-ram-sata-optical-drive-oem-sh-222ab-bebe
