What does the CRC of a CD mean? 2019-12-07 23:51:50 I have been looking at this cue tools database (http://db.cuetools.net/) and saw it has a CRC for each album and each tack. What is it the CRC of. Is it the CRC of the PCM samples or the raw data on the CD? (Which red book has a special compression format right?) So could the CRC on that site be used to verify WAV files or only CDs?If it's the format of the PCM samples do they need to be signed little endian to calculate the CRC?Also, why is there so many different CRC's of the same album. I looked at an album that had over 10 different entries of it all with different CRC numbers.
