Problem with EAC

I am currently ripping all my Cds to flac with eac, but there is a problem:

Eac reads out the CDs correctly, this is not the problem but there are two problems that irritate me.
1. Eac detects different gaps, depending on what detection method i use, how can i find out which one is the correct?
2. Eac only reads out my audio Cds with about 2x Speed, this is very slow. I tried to speed it up by setting the speed manually in the configuration, but it doesn't affect anything. My drive is a LG GH22NS40, has anyone the same problems with the drive?
The thing that irritates me about that point is that when i am ripping with foobar it speeds up the discs correctly, you only take about 5 minutes to rip a CD securely while with EAC it takes about 15 Minutes.
Another thing that i wonder about is that EAC is reacting very slow when i am ripping a cd, it takes about 5 seconds to get it to the front when minimized into the taskbar. Why could this be? My PC should be fast enough with a phenom II x3 720 and 4 gb ram.

Anybody got an idea?

I guess I should have put the word "or" in bold as well. Burst T&C is no less secure than secure mode when the checksums match.

What you should do is read our wiki regarding settings. There is little about burst T&C or other ripping techniques besides secure mode, or i would have told you to read the wiki earlier. smile.gif

I've to confess that this baffles me. I can't remember seeing this discussed here before. Since matching CRC's with erroneous data is possible, isn't the secure mode better because it's theoretically more likely to catch errors since it's reading the data more often? I'm really baffled since my knowledge (FWIW) & intuition (not very scientific smile.gif) tells me that secure mode is better but on the other hand, I know your vast knowledge about EAC (+other things).

I faintly remember seeing a numbered list* of different methods to make sure that you get the most secure/accurate rips as possible posted by, umm, was it spoon, in some thread and since that I've wondered sometimes that something like that should be put to the Wiki and end these endless topics/posts about what mode/etc. is better/secure/accurate.

* e.g. (this might be wrong, but it's a opener smile.gif):

Method - how secure/accurate it is
1) AR verification (1 match of all tracks within one offset is enough if it's not your own submission to the AR database) - very reliable (odds? one in 4 billion?)
2) Burst copy & secure test matching CRC's with different drives (note! not same chipsets) - how reliable? (first and last tracks (could) yield different CRC's if drive offsets are not the same?)
3) Burst copy & secure test matching CRC's - how reliable?
4) Secure copy & test matching CRC's - how reliable?
5) Burst copy & test matching CRC's - how reliable?
6) etc.?

+ some notes about these, e.g. info about that matching CRC's are not a guarantee of perfect rips, "track quality 100%" doesn't guarantee perfect rip, etc.

What do you think? Would this be a good idea? First discussing it in a topic and then put it in Wiki? I've Wiki rights so I can help there if others with rights are not willing.
