View Full Version : Twice in burst mode with all green... enough?

04-26-2008, 01:00 PM

I am ripping about 400 cds and here's my workflow:

1. Rip in burst mode.
2. If it is in AccurateRip and all tracks match --> OK.
3. If it's not in AR then rip again in burst mode.
4. If all CRC are green -> OK.
5. put the CD in the "deal with this later" pile.

I've ripped over 200 with about 40% in AccurateRip and until now my faulty stack is just over 10 CDs.

My question is: If I rip twice in burst mode and get all tracks green, am I risking to get errors? How easily would this happen?

I decided to use burst mode because UltraSecure seems to be much slower. I will use UltraSecure only in the ones in which I don't get all tracks green.

Am I being dumb? Am I risking too much?

I would suggest to use ultra secure if you are really concerned about it.

If not, the next best alternative would be to re-rip in DIFFERENT drive and see if CRCs match.

You are not overly risking errors if you get verification, but you are gving yourself extra work, if you select secure mode it does exactly as you work flow, just automatically.

I see...
Thank you for your answers. I already started using UltraSecure.
