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.

Sorry for the thread revival, but just wanted to note for future google searches that I did a test with Audiochecker 2.0 beta. I converted some songs that I downloaded from iTunes (256kbps AAC) to FLAC. I then used Audiochecker to analyze the files and it showed that all but one were CDDA with 100% probability. This is proof enough to me that Audiochecker is not completely reliable if you weren't already skeptical.

Agree, I did few test myself in the past (http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=808771) and I had the same results. The software is not 100% reliable.
