I've had some real problems with CD-ripping. CDParanoia can't cope with a couple of spoken-word CD's that I have, and in any case, cdparanoia is slow. I don't know if I just have a crappy CD-ROM drive, or if Linux has a dodgy IDE-ATAPI driver, but whatever the cause, it makes the whole rip-encode cycle very painful.

This is one of the few times when I'd really prefer a SCSI CD-ROM rather than an ATAPI one.
