Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Should I leave the drive cache checked at all times

I'm using a EAC 1.6 with Pioneer BDR-XD07UHD USB DVD/Blu-Ray Burner

        If the "Detect Read Features..." function reports "Caching : Yes", it is important that you enable the cache flushing routine by checking the "Drive caches audio data" box.

        If the "Detect Read Features..." function reports "Caching : No", it is not necessary to enable the flushing routine. Checking the "Drive caches audio data" box with drives that are reported by EAC as not caching will not improve EAC's accuracy. It won't improve EAC's ability to detect errors nor EAC's ability to correct them. What it will do however, is reduce your ripping speed and shorten the life of your drive.

I'm having a real hard time with ripping cd's with this drive. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. It doesn't seem to matter what options I select in drive options unless when I select detect read features and drive cache get's checked then it always works. Seems to be a random problem with ripping audio cd's.

You should leave the "Drive caches audio data" box checked all the time based on that statement.
The extraction logs in the other topic show the box wasn't checked.
Defeat audio cache      : No
Should say YES when box is checked.

If ripping the same CD twice on the drive produces two different results, you probably have a faulty drive that needs to be replaced.
