Sorry for starting so many threads...but this one is important.

I've just ripped about 150 CDs of my collection with EAC, and I just realized that my gap detection was set to method B, inaccurate. I've done some searches and found that secure and accurate are about the same, but I couldn't figure out how bad inaccurate is in comparison.

I tried re-reripping a few discs, and noticed no difference in the cuesheets.

So how bad is inaccurate? If there's much risk that my rips are off, I'll probably redo the whole thing...I'm kind of nuts that way (want as close to perfect rips as possible) and I've got lots of time this summer....

...am guessing that EAC Method A Secure is more accurate than anything else.

Of course, this would only apply to your particular drive, I assume.

I've been ripping hundreds of CDs recently, and one of the drives I'm using is an old Plextor Plexwriter 12/10/32A. In EAC, I've got to keep alternating between modes A,B, and C because most of the time one of them will just kind of freeze and sit for hours on one track, making no progress. It's a little odd...
