My above drive only reads into Lead In.

It has an offset of +733 and the drive is set at this.

As it only reads into Lead In I have not ticked the box Reads Into Lead In/Lead Out.As I've read it will cause a read error at the end of the disc.

Is this set up correct.Do you only tick Reads into Lead In/Out if the drive does both?

So, I'd recommend not turning on "Read Into Lead-In/Lead-Out" if your drive only reports reading into Lead-In.

Ah, the problem you have heard of can occur when the box is ticked and
a) offset correction is positive and drive only reads lead-in
b) offset correction is negative and drive only reads lead-out

Check the thread i referred to in my previous post, Pio2000 has a good explanation.

So if your drive has a negative offset correction value and only reads into lead-in it is safe to tick the box, since a negative value would mean that EAC only would attempt to read lead-in (not lead-out). But since your drive has a positive correction value it is of course absolutely correct not to tick the box...
