Read offset formats

Hi all, I got a PX-750a drive, and the native Plextor’s program reports its offset as -408, while on this site
http://www.accuraterip.com/driveoffsets.htm
My drive’s reported offset is +102.

Is this due to different read offset formats or is there some more serious problem?

Thanks in advance,
Anton

There is no problem. PlexTools reports the [B]read offset[/B] in [B]bytes[/B], while on the accuraterip database you find the [B]read offset CORRECTION[/B] in [B]4-bytes samples[/B], following the convention used by one of the few rippers that allow offset correction, Exact Audio Copy (EAC).

Therefore 408 (bytes) is 102*4 (samples) and is correct, and the reverted sign is due to the fact that the read offset CORRECTION is the [I]opposite[/I] of the read offset.

Many thanks!
