My drive supports C2 error correction and I have been using it always since it gives the fastest rips for me, while still no errors are reported and all track qualities are above 99.5%. Using this option, I get rip speeds of 18x and I was wondering whether C2 error correction is really that reliable? I mean, I never get error messages, the track quality is always reported to be over 99.5% and I cannot hear any audible difference. Is there any incentive NOT to rip at 18x under these conditions?! Btw, my drive is a LiteOn 48x CDRW (I can't remember the model name off the top of my head)

Hello!
"CD ROMs are like audio CD with error recovery files included. An audio CDR has a capacity of 740, or 800 MB. A CD ROM records 650 or 700 MB of data and 90 or 100 MB of error recovery data. In order to benefit from them in audio, just burn wav files on data CDs"

How can i do this correctly? I mean burning wav files?

What is your objective here? Is it to archive your music, or do you want to be able to play the CDs that you create?

If you want to archive your music then you should use lossless encoding. This makes the files smaller and provides much more useful tagging.

If you want to be able to play the CDs then the only thing that can play wav files on a CD is a computer, and again you should use lossless compression.

OTOH there are many devices that can play lossy files on a CD, and some can also play lossless files.

Did you really want to resurrect a 3 year old resurrection of a 4.5 year old thread?
