well, I thought you mean a multimedia CD, a CD-Extra disc, with one audio session, and one data session at the end.
If it’s a data CD, jitter is not involved.
Only with audio CDs jitter may be a problem, but new drives correct this in hardware and there’s no need to enable it in software.
The problem appears in old drives mostly when the reading buffer is filled and extraction has to be stopped for an instant.
Feurio! has an option to test if your drive has problems with jitter correction in Program Parameters -> Test Device (“Read Test” is enough)
It’s all in the FAQs and manuals:
BTW, maybe I didn’t get it all right according to Feurio’s help (at least in Feurio):
"ATTENTION: The jitter correction of Feurio!Â® mustnÂ´t be activated if the drive already performs a jitter correction of itself (i. e. reads correctly without jitter correction), because double jitter correction may cause errors! (Because Feurio!Â® â€overlapsâ€ the sectors when reading with error correction, the internal jitter correction of some drives will be confused and produce incorrect data.) "
Althought I remember that I used that option enabled in the old times and the results seemed right…
