help me interpret this CUETools accurip output?
I am tidying up some old CD rips to satisfy my OCD, and I have found CUETools to be an amazingly helpful tool. In almost all cases it has convinced me that my old old rips are still accurate even thought they were done before there was AccurateRip data to compare them to.

But one CD (actually a two CD set) has given me this output:

How should I take this? Is my rip accurate, or not? Why the different samples? Can I assume they are from someone else's rip?

Thanks!

No errors in the rip? (I see that all the track CRCs match the original rip but a rip log would have been helpful).
You do not have an accurate match in either database for the complete disc.
The sample differences are a comparison of your rip against others in the CUETools Database (CTDB) that have a recovery record (the disc may be repairable), however (1/x) records should be considered unreliable for repair use (see known issues).

You may have a disc version that just isn't in either database.

So maybe just a different pressing? If the EAC rip had no errors, I can pretty much be sure I had a good rip, I think.

Thanks!

Well track 8 could be iffy.

Track quality 99.7 %
Test CRC 4EC18409
Copy CRC E9CAFDA1

But there's no clear indication that the Copy CRC is wrong and secure mode did not correctly copy the track.

Re-rip your disc and any questions will most likely be answered.

You could say the same thing about the test pass.

So that it is clear matching CRCs are proof of consistent data; they are not proof of an accurate extraction. If the test pass finished without EAC exhausting all the allotted re-read sets, what would that tell you?

With the same drive, program and settings?

Maybe if you changed at least one of those things up then the word "likely" would be more easily entertained.

I did call the track iffy. Using only the log, there's information missing for the test pass. If any uncorrectable read errors did occur during the test pass they aren't reported to the log as suspicious positions. The copy pass however didn't report any uncorrectable read errors to the log as suspicious positions but had a track quality of less than 100%. So re-reads occurred and at least 8 reads had the same CRC. Could that CRC be wrong? Yes it happens occasionally. AccurateRip or CTDB data would be helpful.

I can't tell that's what happened from the log but I do agree that rarely it can. If the on-screen rip dialog showed the test pass completed (with re-reads) but without any uncorrectable read errors then at least 8 reads had the same CRC for that pass as well but with a different CRC than the copy pass. If I had this additional information I would be even more likely to question the copy result.

Either way I would have cleaned the disc and re-ripped the track. If I still didn't find the result satisfactory I would try a different drive or settings as you suggested.

When someone has gone though an entire collection in order to focus on the questionable rips, "rare" all of a sudden becomes less so.

Uncorrectable read errors?  Call it what it really is: data that isn't consistent beyond an arbitrarily chosen threshold. The two concepts are not at all the same.

You're correct, of course.  Diversity is a good thing when ripping. 
When I saw boombass' original rip is 5 years old I assumed they no longer have the same optical drive, thus the suggestion in my first post in all its brevity.  I really shouldn't make such an assumption. 

So to expound, I'd suggest boombass re-rip the disc on a totally different drive.  Not another of the same model, or similar model, or another brand that OEMed the same internal guts and slapped their name on it.  A totally different drive.  That's the first step.
