    Had to replace my hard drive, should I re-rip the following CDs?

    I ripped around 130 or so CDs. In the meantime, my hard drive was having a problem, and had to be replaced. I've now ripped the rest of my collection with the new drive. Is there any need to go back and re-rip those previous 130 CDs? I guess I'm asking if there would be any noticeable audio difference between the two drives?

    The files potentially might be corrupted, which format did you rip to?

    They were ripped to flac (uncompressed). Also converted to Apple Lossless. I can't tell any problem with the rips, they sound fine.

    If they are flac, you can convert to 'Test Conversion' using Batch Converter, if there is any corruption it would be reported at the end.

    No...that's not even possible, so long as the files are intact.

    The files seem to be fine, so I'm gonna leave them.
