With Digital Audio Extraction, it's not the RAM that counts - it's
generally the speed of the extraction, the software, the CD-ROM player, and
the CD itself.

Interestingly, I've never had any problem using Quicktime's built-in
Digital Audio Extraction; it always comes up trumps every time - so why
does Toast mangle it so badly? It's a bit annoying to have to use QT to
extract audio every time I want to copy some of my work...

I think Adaptec need to supply us with a proviso there.... (well, they do
on their support web site).
