Hello,

I've read somewhere that Audiochecker is fair enough but not 100% reliable. I've just checked some of my flac files and Audiochecker tells me sometimes that a file is 95% MPEG (while the rest of the album is 100% CDDA).

How can it be that sure (95%) while it is completely wrong since I ripped it myself from a CD? (or maybe my brand new CD was created from MPEG files laugh.gif )

Thank you in advance.

Ok, though my reply ought to convey that, personally, I don't have much faith in the accuracy of that program. If it doesn't, then hopefully this reply does.

It is true that there are CDs that can be purchased from legitimate places that are sourced from lossy, however.

I recommend searching the forum as this topic comes up quite a bit.

That's what I did but I made the mistake to search for "Audiochecker" in the CD Hardware/Software setcion (which gave me one closed thread)!
