Ripping my collection, a couple of questions 2019-03-25 17:28:51 Hi everybody,I’m new to the forum. I’m ripping my collection (about 600 cds, generally in very good conditions) in flac with EAC. I configured it according to the guide in secure mode. Since it is a long job I want it to be as close to perfect as possible. Now, I have two questions:I’m using accuraterip in secure mode, should I test and copy every track or it would be overkill? Just copy isn’t enough? Some cds I have are not in the accuraterip database (mostly reissues of underground albums)I’m using a cheap usb connected cd drive (I only have a laptop, so for me the drive must be external and with a usb connection) with a +6 read offset correction value. The drive is: ASUS - SDRW-08D2S-UI’m thinking of buying this: https://www.amazon.it/Asus-BW-12D1S-U-Masterizzatore-Blu-ray/dp/B004XFYGX0Is it a good idea? Anyone had experience with it? It seems fast and on the accuraterip list this ASUS - BW-12D1S-U has an offset correction value of +667. I’m looking for a solid, good quality drive but I don’t want to buy a used one and the price should be reasonable.I know there are different opinions about the importance of the cd drive (many people say that as long as the cd is ripped correctly anything else is indifferent). Please give me some opinions about the method I’m using and, if you ever experienced it, about the quality and speed of this asus bw-12d1s-u drive. Thanks a lot to everybody. Please keep in mind that I’m a beginner when it comes to ripping cds.A.
