There sometimes are pressing errors. Also I don't know how EAC reacts to those pesky defective by design CDs.

But if it verifies AccurateRip - or you can repair it using CUETools - you are all fine.

How do you use cuetools to repair it? Never done it before.

Open the cuesheet or track 1 i CUETools. Select Encode, and under the drop-down select repair, that's the "(7)" here: http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Settings

See if it works. Often it does not - there has to be a parity file in the database for that particular CD release, and you cannot have too many errors (at most half a second in total, actually - but that is more than you think). If a CD has only a doubtful pressing and nothing else, then ... tough luck. If there were several pressings including good ones ... maybe.
