So it failed because the data read from the drive was corrupted.

Power supply maybe? Check the rails. The +12VDC must be good.

Hi Alistair,

Good suggestion - I've rebooted and am running the box with one of the DVDroms connected to an external PSU. I'd now expect the one on the internal rail to be the failing one, if either fails.

I'm done ripping CDs for now, but I'm checking to see if I can trigger the same ripping DVDs.
