First of all, this is an amazing community, thanks for being so professional.

I have one simple question and since it's easier to show it...

This is what I get when I encode the same track from an original audio CD:

CRC32 MD5 Filename

How can this be possible? Can they (AE) really be all "wrong"? They don't have some feature that EAC, dBpa and CUERipper enable in my drive (Pioneer DVR-219LBK)?

*The three (C8) rips have been tested with AccurateRip and they give the message 8, EAC also says 100% accurate.


edit: on MusicBee it changed the offset to +6 (when I clicked Lookup), C2 error check, verify with AccurateRip and secure rip and I'm happy with the CRC result. What is that I've changed and made the rip to result the same?
edit2: I got it, it's the CD Drive Offset, I just checked with this list (http://www.accuraterip.com/driveoffsets.htm) and it's the +6 that made the rip accurate. Now I want a list of every CD ripper software where you can't change that smile.gif
edit3: Sorry guys, this post is a big fail! I know what the problem is and how to fix/change it, is there a list of software that allow you to change the CD Drive Offset?
