How to tell if Log file edited?

A colleague of mine owes me a complete 1:1 100% cd because I bought a stupid CD for him and gave it to him. He moves states and is buying me a CD and sent me the EAC log files.

How can I tell if he tampered with the .log files just to make his rip seem accurate? It says 100% but I'm surprised he actually managed it and doubtful.

Why wouldn't it be?

Just point CUETools to the .cue file (or to the folder containing the audio + .log, if no .cue available) and you can (re-)check the audio data against the AccurateRip and CUETools databases.

Create a text file and copy and paste into it:
Quote
@echo off
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Exact Audio Copy\CheckLog.exe" %1

pause

(or wherever your EAC directory is)

Then change .txt to .bat and drag whatever log file into the .bat file.

Sorry..this just shows every cue file I do as "This file has been modified!" It clearly does not work since none of the cue files were modified (cd's i also ripped myself).

Only works when the log file has a checksum appended when written.

EAC>EAC Options...>Tools tab>Append checksum to status report (checked)
EAC V1.0 beta 1 and up

checksum is appended. but no matter what the log file is - instantly "log has been modified" when it hasn't.
