That sounds like the right sort of speed with paranoia switched on. Audio
data doesn't really lend itself to being extracted in a hurry for reasons
that Monty explains on the website. I think my Asus 50x can pull audio off at
10x speeds reasonably accurately with paranoia switched off, but then it
claims to be good at that sort of thing on the box.
Mind you, it's been a while since I checked, so I could be wrong.
Anyone know of any particularly fast drives?
