FLAC using EAC "There were errors". Is that normal
Ripping my enitire collection for the first (and only?). Using EAC I'm ripping FLAC's (compression 6). At the end of every Log it states "There were errors". Also, some tracks list "Track quality 99.9%". Are these normal things?

I'm somewhat of Audiophile. Knowing I'm not ripping anything but perfect lossless files would keep me awake at night. Hell, I'm still coming to terms with the concept of Lossy compression were data is actually lost!?

Please post a log file so we don't have to guess as to what may have gone wrong (if anything).

Make sure to present it using the "codebox" command.

I have the same question in regards to the "99.8%" accurate. Except in my situation it doesn't say there are errors. What's with the missing .2 percent? I'm not to torn up about it but it is curious.

This happens with some discs.

Try test and copy (Shift+F6) in burst mode or try a different drive.  The error will result in no worse than the substitution of low-level noise with digital silence after the last track has pretty much finished.
