EAC-read CRC problem
I am using EAC V0.9b4 and LAME alt preset standard.  I have noticed every once and a while a EAC will have an error writting a track. Usually this happens with older CDs such as Van Morrison, Led Zepplin, etc...
It seems there are no set of Numbers/letters under "read CRC" for that particular track.
For example for the Album Led Zeppin IV-track #8 had no recognized CRC and the log states this:

Suspicious position 0:04:17

  Missing samples
  Peak level 0.0 %
  Track quality 99.3 %
  Copy finished

There were errors

Any way to get EAC to read this track?  Would love to be able to have the entire album in mp3 format>
Any advice is appreciated.
Tim

Goto EAC Options.  Under the Extraction tab, uncheck "Skip track extraction on read or sync errors."
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

thanks for your reply. I did what you recommended and I believe it worked. the track plays and sounds fine but still got this response:

  Suspicious position 0:03:55
  Suspicious position 0:04:33 - 0:04:34

  Peak level 74.3 %
  Track quality 98.8 %
  Copy CRC DC45A399
  Copy finished

There were errors

Not sure what this means but anway it seems to have worked! 
Thanks,
Tim

It means that your rip was probably not error-free.

Are you ripping in secure or burst mode?  Suspicious position occurs a lot more frequently using burst mode.

It really only depends on the disc.

I can get bad rips in burst mode without it reporting suspicious positions.  I can get bad rips without it reporting timing problems as well.

Are you ripping in secure or burst mode?
But to answer your question, he's using secure mode.  A track quality isn't given when you use burst mode.
