Hi all. For comparison purposes, I ripped a CD song with XLD (XLD20161007, downloaded from SourceForge) and iTunes (updated), both set for Apple Lossless. The two files appeared in iTunes. Unfortunately, I was unable to play the XLD version on my Mac (Sierra) with iTunes. Instead of music, I only heard a loud buzzing or humming sound. iTunes was able to play the version of the song that I had ripped with iTunes. Below are my first attempts at using screenshots. Unfortunately, I did not keep the XLD log. Screen Shot 2017-03-01 at 12.13.35 PM.png Screen Shot 2017-03-01 at 12.11.30 PM.png

Be interesting to see if you can resolve this. I have an older (2014) version and just used it to rip a bunch of my CD's to ALAC. Worked fine. I will consider updating to the latest version if anyone can help you figure out the problem.

I just used XLD to rip the song again, and this time I used MPEG - 4 ACC. I made no other changes to the XLD preferences. The ripped version appeared in iTunes, but when I tried to play it, I had the same loud buzz or hum sound and no music. The log info is the same as the log I had deleted: in particular,
AccurateRip Summary (DiscID: 00162474-00aee223-890d030a)
Track 09 : NG (total 9 submissions)
->0 track accurately ripped, 1 track not

That is very interesting. Has it done it with any other CD's or just this one?
Hi Rhett. Thanks for the response. With a new CD, after the XLD test ended got dialogue box "Error: cannot open the input file". Deselected test and ripped again. The song appeared in iTunes, but when I played it, I only heard the buzz/hum sound. Although I failed to mention this issue in my first post, I probably followed the same steps on the original problem CD, because I remember unsuccessfully searching the forums re the "cannot open" issue. Later today, I will delete my current XLD file and download a version of XLD from a different site and see if that makes a difference.
