Small but serious bug in EAC - and how to avoid it
A few weeks ago I discovered a small but annoying bug in EAC. It appears, when there were "suspicious positions" at some tracks while grabbing. In earlier versions EAC always wrote then "There were errors" at the end of the logfile. But instead of doing this, it now always wrote "No errors occured". So it happened during my last several dozen ripps, that I grabbed 7 or 8 CD´s with errors - and didn´t notice it at first, as I took my focus only at the end-message of the logfiles. Important: The bug appears only in the german version of EAC, as there happened a mistake in the german translation-file of EAC. It was reported to André Wiethoff (the author of EAC) a few weeks ago, and meanwhile he uploaded a corrected german textfile (dated on 14/07). So, if you haven´t done it not yet, please download this one from his webpage. If you downloaded the main-program newly, you also have to download the fixed german textfile additionally, as the main program-package was not yet updated.

CRC mismatch, but "no errors" as conclusion ??? (it was a burst Test & Copy extraction).

This is not a language pack error, but something that occurs when the Test rip, and the Copy rip result in different outputs, thus the checksums are different. IMO EAC should report this as a bad rip, but it doesnt. Try lowering the speed of the drive, using nero drivespeed, or similar programs. I hope this helps.

EAC has always reported "no errors occured" when CRC mismatch, but no errors were detected. It means that no error was detected during the reading part.

What we talk about here is much more annoying : reporting "no errors occured" (in german, AFAIU) whatever happens. If I understood well, the message "there were errors" have been replaced by "no errors occured" in the german translation.
