ripping cd

Recently ripped a cd to hard drive and now have audio dropouts. I used eac and also dbpoweramp with the same results. I tried the cd in a cd player and it played fine. Tried compressed and ucompressed still same results. I'm using flac. Ripped other cd's that are fine. Any suggestions ? Thanks

(1) Clean the CD so that its bottom surface (the one without nomenclature) is scrupulously clean and shiny.

(2) Try a different optical drive for ripping. Optical drives go bad even when not used and one of the first things to go is the ability to read discs that are suboptimal.

(3) Try a different PC for ripping. It is conceivable that due to hardware and software issues, your PC is actually running in fits and spurts. EAC is for example resistant to this, but nothing is perfect.

(4) Examine the CD carefully by holding it up to a light source and looking for pinholes in the plating.

I check out blu-rays a lot. In my experience daylight works best when examine disc. In general artificial light works not that well.

Thanks for the replies. I did 1,2,4, still the same results. I do not have another pc but I will ask a friend to help and see if that makes a difference. Would settings in the ripping program make a difference? I have ripped a lot of older cd's without any trouble. I just purchased this cd two days ago. Thanks again

If you bought it two days ago, exchange it as defective.
