I've just started ripping my audio CDs to FLAC with EAC, and I'm still sorting out best practice, process etc.

One of my CDs has produced the following results (edited for length):

Track 8

Filename E:\EACrips\08. The Declining Winter - Red Kite.wav

Peak level 81.6 %
Extraction speed 3.7 X
Track quality 100.0 %
Test CRC 19AB6DF6
Copy CRC 19AB6DF6
Cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 3) [3794ECF4], AccurateRip returned [1FA5E99D] (AR v2)
Copy OK

Track 10

Filename E:\EACrips\10. Darren Hayman - Summer Visitors.wav

Peak level 97.2 %
Extraction speed 4.0 X
Track quality 100.0 %
Cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [F97616EF], AccurateRip returned [554C2A29] (AR v2)
Copy OK

2 track(s) could not be verified as accurate
1 track(s) not present in the AccurateRip database

Some tracks could not be verified as accurate

You can use CUETools to repair this rip.

I reripped with a different drive and got the same results (CRCs match previous rips). Given that should I accept the rip as okay - or should I use CUEtools to repair as suggested? (And if so how do I set up CUETools?)

Any advice much appreciated!

I've seen things like this on some very popular CDs, including some classic Pink Floyd - with high confidence levels of both variants, and differences in thousands of samples.

My guess is that the CD masters slightly differ, one could have been used e.g. for European releases, one for US. It's hard to determine in such cases which one is correct.

So my advice - don't repair it.
