There will be no physical error, but the data might be "changed" (corrupted).
C1 and C2 errors are "physical" errors.
Anyway, if you rip with a lot of care, you might be able to recover the original and true data.
You probably EAC to perform such ripping. It usually works better than anything.
You need a drive that reports C2 errors to scan the surface: Nero CDSpeed can do that, and Feurio does that automatically when ripping (another good reason to use it instead of Nero if you want burst ripping).
LiteOn drives, Plex Premium, some Sanyo also allow to scan C1 errors.
