A couple of questions about EAC

Hi guys, I opened another thread to ask something about EAC etc. My first question is if there's any real benefit by activating the C2 error information mode. EAC says my drive is capable of retrieving C2 error information but I read here and on various forum on the web that maybe it's not a good choice. I'm a little confused. My current configuration is Secure Mode with accurate stream + test and copy to extract audio. Mine is a good choice?

Another questions is about "differs samples" in some tracks. I read that it could refer to some bad rips from users. I tried to listening at the point of samples and I don't hear any glitch ecc. This is my result:

#9 could be that the CD had dodgy pressings ...
What do the AccurateRip figures say?

EAC can test if C2 capable but cannot tell you whether the C2 setting will be reliable.

This section of the extraction results are from the CUETools Database Plugin for EAC
You should be looking at
Code: [Select]
  1   | (1862/1890) Accurately ripped
  2   | (1870/1890) Accurately ripped
  3   | (1868/1890) Accurately ripped
  4   | (1863/1890) Accurately ripped
  5   | (1873/1890) Accurately ripped
  6   | (1872/1890) Accurately ripped
  7   | (1869/1890) Accurately ripped
  8   | (1854/1890) Accurately ripped
  9   |  ( 24/1890) Accurately ripped
 10   | (1857/1890) Accurately ripped
and not worry about the "differs in" unless it doesn't say "Accurately ripped" or x is not greater than 1 (x/1890)

a (1/1890) Accurately ripped result could be from your own previous rip

Any "differs in" where x is not greater than 1 (x/1890) should be ignored as a probable bad rip. See plugin Known Issues.
The issue was fixed in newer versions of the plugin but some people are still using older versions of EAC with the old plugin.

Edit: cleaned up

Yeah result was already added in database from my previous rip in mp3. Now I'm ripping in flac. I attach entire EAC log.

So I don't have to worry? My rip is perfect? And about C2 pointers even if EAC says it's supported can I keep it disabled? As in log, config is like this:

Read mode               : Secure
Utilize accurate stream : Yes
Defeat audio cache      : No
Make use of C2 pointers : No
"Always account for the change."

All tracks accurately ripped.
It is OK to disable use of C2 pointers.

Thanks Korth! Very gentle!  :) A last question...I'm ripping in individual tracks and when I create the cue sheet file I get INDEX 00 for some album. Is it normal?

After read all which one should I choose? Current Gap Settings or Multiple WAV Files With Gaps (Noncompliant)?
"Always account for the change."

With the default settings

Append Gaps to Previous Track (default)
either would produce the same CUE.

Ok, now everything is clear! So I always did well to use "Multiple WAV Files With Gaps (Noncompliant)". Thank you again Korth for your patience!  ;)

If I'm not mistaken that will prevent you from using Cuetools and many other tools which expect a compliant cuesheet.

Personally I've always preferred to rip losslessly as an image (single .wav file + CUE) and eventually use Foobar2000 to split the tracks and compress them with LAME for usage on my portable devices, but of course YMMV...

CUETools can read a Noncompliant CUE sheet. CUETools and CUERipper will also create Noncompliant CUE sheets when the gap information is available.
Other programs that adhere to the cue sheet specification, like foobar2000 won't be able to read it.
