Hi, I'd like to know is there a way to report this to AccurateRip's database so it could get fixed.

I have a cd drive of model "ATAPI - DVD A DH16ABSH", which is listed on AccurateRip's model list, with a offset of 6.

Also I have verified this offset with some other discs(including 'key discs'), they all gave me 'accurate rips'.

The program I used were EAC 1.00b2 and foobar2k 1.1.18.

EAC just simply reports CRCs don't match:

AccurateRip summary

Track 1 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [1682E82B], AccurateRip returned [5F69F537] (AR v2)

Track 2 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [4FE13BF2], AccurateRip returned [020682CC] (AR v2)

Track 3 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [B180CA80], AccurateRip returned [0894D985] (AR v2)

Track 4 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [5308F85E], AccurateRip returned [EDA9AC80] (AR v2)

Track 5 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [68204D4E], AccurateRip returned [1657B595] (AR v2)

Track 6 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [33367808], AccurateRip returned [5C8979F0] (AR v2)

Track 8 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [299FAA13], AccurateRip returned [B9DB361D] (AR v2)

Track 9 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [4C9694AE], AccurateRip returned [BA9F7967] (AR v2)

Track 10 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [F50F5DD2], AccurateRip returned [E2402413] (AR v2)

Track 11 cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [21B70EB8], AccurateRip returned [925ABF57] (AR v2)

No tracks could be verified as accurate

You may have a different pressing from the one(s) in the database

While I know fb2k will try to calculate (and match) CRCs using different offsets, so I used fb2k also, and the output:

AccurateRip status:

Track Status

01 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

02 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

03 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

04 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

05 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

06 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

07 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

08 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

09 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

10 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

11 Accurately ripped with offset: -515(2).

FWIW, I have several questions:

Does the

**confidence 2** in EAC's report refers to there were 2 reports to the accuraterip database before?

And so does the

**(2)** in fb2k's report?

Since I could verify my drive and my ripping settings with different discs, while all other discs I've tried reported exact match, does it mean the probability of wrong CRCs in accuraterip database?

So if I think the CRCs in accuraterip database is not correct, is there a way to fix it?

P.S.

The problematic disc is "小松未歩 - 謎"(Miho Komatsu - Nazo), a jpop disc released in 1997.

EDIT:

(I think) I know exactly what the terms such as read offset, jitter, C2 error, etc. mean, and I know how audio cd is differenct from data cd.

And yes, I know I could simply achieve 'Exact Audio Rip' by just ignoring these and I don't plan to do 'Exact Audio Copy'(means I don't plan to burn it, etc..). But thanks to fidelity, I want to achieve 'Exact Audio Copy'.
