#525 Blank spots in some MP3 files

Ripping (44)
K. W. Ortmann

(I hope this is not a duplication.)

I have a desktop with Windows XP SP3 and 1 gig of memory. I am using Cdex (latest

version) to rip my CDs to MP3s. I have only had it for a few days but was happy to find it.

I did 5 - 6 discs and then checked random tracks with good results. I saved the

configuration and set about to rip all the discs. I'm about 100 discs into the project and,

spotting a song I really needed to hear then, played the MP3. I found about a 2 second

dead spot about 7 seconds in. I checked the CD and there is no problem with it. I re-ripped

that track and that MP3 is fine. Now, I have selected about 18 - 19 random tracks from

random folders and found 2 more dead spots, each one in the first 20 seconds of the files.

I have 1236 MP3s in 170 folders and the idea of checking each one for flaws is daunting to

say the least. Suggestions?? Sys. info. follows.
