Hey guys,

I'm running EAC having followed Chris Myden's setup guide; In "drive options," accurate stream checked, caches audio checked, and c2 correction unchecked. This should be secure, no? I'm getting weird crackling distortions ripping a number of different CDs to both FLAC and LAME.

Where should I be looking for the problem?

Sometimes heavily clipped (loud) records are so bad they make crackling sounds. How do your CDs sound in a CD player?

Other things to consider:
Is there some sort of copy protection on the discs?
Are you using the correct drive read command?

Checking "Drive caches audio" should have no negative side-effects on any drive other than slower ripping. Unchecking it on a drive that does cache audio data can negatively affect quality, and was the reason for the option's existence in the first place.

1. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
2. Assume good faith.
