Title: Is there any reason to do a secure rip when AccurateRip exists
Post by: apastuszak on 2020-09-15 02:57:00
I'm using XLD on my Mac to rip CDs.  I ripping set to use XLD Secure Ripper.

But now I am wondering.  Is there any reason I can't just use burst mode.  If the rip after burst mode passes AccurateRip verification, doesn't that mean I have a good rip?

If the confidence is at least 3, then no, burst is enough.

dBpoweramp, from the creator of AccurateRip, does burst first - and if then it is verified with AccurateRip, that is it. Sensible.

I can remember I once wanted it to do different, but I'm not sure if it were even an issue: I once re-ripped on a different computer (but same drive), and wanted to avoid verifying against "myself-only". Those were cases where my submission was the only one on record.

Oh, and there is a chance that burst & verify might let through some defective pressings where error detection would have come up with red flags - but if so: what is then a "correct rip"?

AccurateRip is as secure as it gets, so no, there's no need for secure rip, whatever software you're using.

Secure ripping REALLY puts a strain your drive.  I just killed a cheap external drive and I think secure ripping may be the issue.  So, if I can burst rip, that would help remove a lot of strain on the drive.

Yeah that too of course, so AccurateRip is obviously the preferred method. As long as it checks and verifies with the other rips available in the database, it's a correct reading, and you don't need to destroy your CD-ROM drive just to be sure it's a correct rip.
