Do you use one of the latest versions of sacd_extract? If so read the information displayed in the GUI the next time you are ripping an SACD, you will be alerted if audio frames are missing vs. the expected.

How do I know what version I am using? I have a version text file in my folder for the app that says:

SACDExtractGUI v0.1-7-g135cbd5d

sacd_extract version 0.3.9@setmind-13-g58db5f16fcf410ae4d6aeca226a067b37ade136a

Is there a later version I should get, and if so where?

Use the same GUI, but remove the version of sacd_extract you currently have from that folder and replace with the appropriate OS platform -99 version found on EuFlo's GitHub.

You'll also need to make it executable if using macOS, or Linux.
 
Tried to rip my SACDs with my Oppo 105, I get error message “Can't open 10.0.0.233:2002 for reading”

what I have done:
installed the content of the dropbox for Oppo player on a USB stick called "SACD RIP":
Screen Shot 2021-09-14 at 1.51.17 PM.png

after plugging the USB stick into the Oppo and switching it on, the drawer opens.
then I put a SACD into the drawer and closed it.

in iso2dsd_gui.jar the oppo at 10.0.0.233 can be pinged and the port 2002 is accessible:

Good afternoon and welcome to HFH.

Re-specify the path to sacd_extract in the Program field using the Browse button (overwrite what is pre-populated in that field).

Also ensure that you have made sacd_extract executable, if that file's description says TextEdit document then it is not yet executable.

You meant SACDExtractGUI, as ISO2DSD does not have this function. Don't try to use both programs at the same time as that can sometimes cause a conflict, close ISO2DSD if you have it open.

Thank you very much MikeyFresh.

I now have it working, and happily ripping my SACD collection in 5.1

Thank you for all the work you have done contributing to this thread
 
Hi there,
I have been able to rip my SACDs successfully for a long time using my Pinoneer 80fd. However, my Pioneer died last week and I ended up getting a used Sony s590. I believe the s590 is compatible for ripping. This Sony player has the most up to date firmware version (xx510). I inserted the same usb stick into the Sony. The tray opens just like it would on my Pioneer. I am using the new SACDgui program. I am able to ping the Sony player but clicking on test says port 2002 is inaccessible. When trying to create an ISO it says failed to read. I can no longer create ISOs anymore. I have checked all the settings and made sure that they were the same as recommended by everyone. I am connected via Ethernet. Should I downgrade my firmware? Not sure what I am doing wrong. Please help.
thanks

The very same USB thumb drive folder that worked on the 80FD will work with the S590, so leave that as is.

The Sony players require use of sleep mode, but you didn't make any mention of whether or not you've setup the S590 to do that, have you?

Lastly, a screenshot of the GUI settings would be helpful, however if you were also using the very same SACDExtractGUI successfully with the 80FD, then there are no changes necessary there.

Hi,
Thanks for your quick response. How do I set up Sleep mode? I insert the disc and click on power off that closes the tray. Is there a setting to active sleep mode?
Yes you'll need to at least temporarily connect a monitor via HDMI, and you'll need the IR remote for the S590 player, or any other Sony Blu-ray player remote, or a universal remote with Sony Blu-ray codes programmed, as the Settings can only be accessed with an IR remote.

In the on-screen displayed Settings menu, you need to enable the Quick Start mode.

Once that's been done, power cycle the unit (with flash drive removed), and upon reconnecting the AC cord, watch the front panel LED display go through it's initial boot sequence.

Wait for the LED display to go dark. Then turn the player on and insert the flash drive, drop a disc in the tray when it opens, and close the tray using the Power OFF button.

Wait for the display to cease flashing OFF, then Run the rip.

Thanks. I had done that too. It did not work. I keep getting “libsacdread: Can’t open xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:2002 for reading”

Well that is certainly the problem, but I don't know why if you have all of the settings correct. If you didn't do the power cycle thinking you had all of the settings correct, you need to power cycle.

Other than that, please post screenshots of your USB flash drive folder structure, and the GUI settings.

PS - you needn't worry about showing the player's IP address, that is only a local address, it is behind your firewall, and has nothing to do with anything internet in terms of access, only your router governs access to your network from the outside world.
 
Thanks...I am now downloading the previous firmware and will try to downgrade the firmware. Hopefully, that fixes the issue. I will also upload the screenshot of iso2dsd. Not worried about IP address since they are LAN based anyway :-) Will keep you posted.

It is not the firmware and we know that, trust me. Downgrading the firmware can brick the machine, don't bother, really. It's far from a straightforward and simple process, and it will not solve anything. I am 100% certain that all firmware versions work, with the possible exception of the original firmware version that the S590 shipped with from the factory.

You are now mentioning ISO2DSD, but earlier you stated SACDExtractGUI, which makes me think perhaps you had both open at the same time and thus a conflict may have occurred. You can't have both programs trying to access the player's file server at the same time.

I just checked my S590's firmware version, it's the same as yours, M12.R.0510.
 
Thank you so much for your help Mikey. It worked after I power cycled the unit a few times.

I was unable to downgrade the firmware...the player wouldn't let me. I tried power cycling the player 4-5 times and made sure I clicked on power off after i put in the disc. I actually tried iso2dsd first and then sacdextractgui. Not sure if I was running them simultaneously...maybe I was. It is now ripping away and this has been a fruitful experience. Thank you so much.
cheers

Good deal, and you can rip about 6-7 consecutive just by loading a new disc in the tray, and once again closing it with Power OFF. You don't need to keep reinserting the flash drive for that.

After 6-7 rips in a row the player's very limited onboard RAM will be exhausted and you will get a refusal. Just power cycle (with the flash drive removed) and repeat the same initial procedure, rinse and repeat every 6-7 discs.

I thought that you had perhaps researched the firmware downgrade, while not impossible on an S590, it isn't at all easy and can result in a bricked unit. Don't ever attempt that except as a final resort to fixing a problem.
 
Thanks Mikey. I only rip SACDs that I purchase and I normally buy 1 or 2 a quarter. My criteria for buying an SACD is audiophile quality only. Will probably never rip 6-7 at a time. The Pioneer was awesome but the spindle motor stopped working. I will remember to power cycle the unit a few times if this issue re-occurs. Thanks again for all your help and super quick response.

Sounds good, and if you do need a power cycle, assuming the flash drive has been removed, you only need do it just one time, not a few.

You don't even have to pull the AC power cord if you don't want too, pressing and holding the Power button (on the S590 itself and not the IR remote) for 10 full seconds will also power cycle the unit (again always with flash drive removed).
 
Use the same GUI, but remove the version of sacd_extract you currently have from that folder and replace with the appropriate OS platform -99 version found on EuFlo's GitHub.

You'll also need to make it executable if using macOS, or Linux.

I updated the version as directed. Today I decided to check to see if that eero wifi extender would make any difference in rip speed by borrowing one that was in use elsewhere in the home and positioning it closer to my system where the PC and Sony are located. Since updating the version, now when I am ripping in progress the window shows total sectors of each track and total completed so I can see the progress of the rip as it goes. The old version showed MB/sec instead of sectors, so without seeing the MB/sec I am not sure as to how fast it is going. I did note that the rip was moving at a pretty good clip, with no apparent difference before or after putting the wifi extender into use.

So now at least I know the new version is working fine, but is there a way to view MB/sec in this new version instead of or in addition to viewing total sectors? If not, then so be it.

Anyway, preliminary tests suggest that buying a wifi extender might not really improve my rip speed. And my housemates are gone away for ten days so at this time there is no activity on our home network except my own devices.
