When I play a CD using FB2K, there are several hesitations at the beginning of each track as the disk spins up, then it plays fine. Changing the buffering (currently the default 1000ms) changes the spacing between the hesitations, but doesn't eliminate them. No hesitations when playing files from HD or flash drive. Other audio players that came with PC--Windows Media Player and Power DVD--do not exhibit problem. BR optical drive was swapped out. No change. HP says it is obviously a software issue and suggest dropping FB2K, but I would like to get it working. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Maybe you should try ripping your collection to disk instead of playing the CDs directly.

LOL If you knew the size of the collection, you'd know how impossible that would be. blink.gif

The oddness of this problem, BTW, is that I have another, older, Win 7 HP Pavilion DV7 with BR drive that does not exhibit the problem. I purchased this faster model to replace that one, hardly expecting that FB2K would not work properly. It has on every other computer I've owned.

Under drive settings, try putting a check in the box "Limit drive speed while reading".

Many thanks, tarkus, that did it! Any idea why this optical drive needed that and not any others I've ever used?

Sorry, I had thought to direct you to that option, but I forgot whether it had been removed and automated. (Since the decoder is told whether it is being opened for conversion or playback, so technically it could limit the speed only for playback.)

That option is probably only necessary for your current drive because your previous drive probably defaulted to limiting the read speed for audio extraction so the drive would run quieter. I know some Plextor drives also limited the read speed of DVDs during normal playback for that very reason.

So why not rip those you anyway have put in the CD drive in order to play?

(I ripped about seven thousand using a CD changer.)

Actually, with all due respect, I've found the opposite to be true. Managing large physical collections is time-consuming, just ask any radio station or record store. I've found that digitizing such collections leads to a more efficient use of time.
