If you rely on C2 info when using EAC, using 'test&copy' is better than just 'copy'.

What if you don't use C2? EAC reads each sector twice and, as a result, has the oportunity to calculate CRC twice, and compare them.


Is that correct? and is the opportunity actually used? (that would mean test&copy is overkill if you disable C2)

So it's not 1/8 but 1/2.


Then it's even better! laugh.gif

(BTW My personal experiences aren't really useful here - most of my disks are in a too good condition, to get useful results.)

Of course scratching them would give me the opportunity to do a lot of testing...
but I don't think I'll do that wink.gif
