AccurateRip clearly helps you make bit perfect rips, and can obviously do so with practically any ODD. And it’s free. But I don’t like two things about it. First, it can only do what it’s supposed to do if you rip the whole CD. Sure, you can delete from your HDD the tracks of music you don’t want. And while ripping the whole CD may not take very long it still wastes time.

Second, ripping a whole CD, rather than just the one or two tracks you want, puts more wear on the drive. And while the cost of replacing most drives is often well under $35, all of those short lived drives create more electronics waste, which often never get recycled.

Sure it’s not possible to invent a “new and improved” AccurateRip?
