Hello everyone.

Could someone please tell me what the difference is in the color of the text for CRC after I rip a CD?

For example, some of the text is black, some is red, and some is green.

All tracks have ripped securely and have AccurateRip.

Thanks.

From the CD ripper help file:
CRC shows the checksum calculated from the last rip, ripping twice and the CRC numbers will show in Green if matches the previous rip CRC, or in Red if miss-matches. Miss-matching CRCs are a sure sign that one of the rips had errors.I think the CRC is black if the track has only been ripped once.

Thanks. That is explains it perfectly. A couple times I had bad rips so I cleaned the CD and ripped again, the CRC would be red but it said the rip was good. The red must mean the prior rip was bad.

Red means it is a miss-match with previous, last or current rip could be bad. Green is a match.

But as per the help file: "the green i indicates that frames had to be re-ripped, possibly an undetected error has slipped through"

Perhaps the i should be orange.

Depends on drive, a drive with good c2, I would trust.

Now that I've got C2 working reliably and have consistent workflow logs, if I find an error that slips through (since I'm re-ripping all tracks with such an error message on different drives) I'll let you know. Also, when I get to 100 re-ripping on a second drive due to frame re-ripping I'll post my results.

Ah, okay! I always wondered but was never concerned enough to ask about it. Very cool.

This raises a question I'm bound to run into even more: Given what you've said about seemingly severe inconsistency/inequality of C2 implementation across the range of optical drives, is it really something we should trust? Well, that or is there a list of drives that we can confirm handle it correctly?

No drives implement C2 that it can be trusted 100%, there is a mathematical hole on c2, at a guess I would say it is around 1% (1% missed error) on spotting an error across a whole disc.

1% error rate seems fantastic to me. Now to figure out who makes a drive that can get that accurate.
