I'm new to this stuff, so please, forgive me if Iâ€™m asking a stupid question.
I have a brand new audio CD, EAC in "accurate" mode and 3 readers:
Plextor PX-708A (Firewire)
Yamaha CRW-F1E (Firewire)
HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8081N (DVD drive in my IBM laptop)
Here are the results of my rip & compare tests:
1. All WAV files have EXACTLY the same lengths.
2. All WAV files from the SAME drive are EXACTLY (bit by bit) the same. (I did about 10 rip/compare cycles).
3. Files from different drives are ALWAYS SIGNIFICANTLY different when compared (bit by bit).
4. When compared (files from different drives) by EAC Compare Tool, Iâ€™m getting the following: â€œError type - nnn missing samples/ Position - 0:0:0:0â€. Itâ€™s always Position 0:0:0:0 but different numbers: 520, 750 etc.
What am I missing?
Thanks for the advice.
