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)

Compare the CRCs of your reads with and without C2. Once in a while there's a mismatch for my Lite-On 48246S which is a very reliable drive itself. That means, your drive makes mistakes even if you can't hear them. The only objective way is to compare the CRCs as to whether it's safe for you to turn on the C2.
