I've just started ripping my audio CDs to FLAC with EAC, and I'm still sorting out best practice, process etc.

One of my CDs has produced the following results (edited for length):

Track 8

Filename E:\EACrips\08. The Declining Winter - Red Kite.wav

Peak level 81.6 %
Extraction speed 3.7 X
Track quality 100.0 %
Test CRC 19AB6DF6
Copy CRC 19AB6DF6
Cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 3) [3794ECF4], AccurateRip returned [1FA5E99D] (AR v2)
Copy OK

Track 10

Filename E:\EACrips\10. Darren Hayman - Summer Visitors.wav

Peak level 97.2 %
Extraction speed 4.0 X
Track quality 100.0 %
Cannot be verified as accurate (confidence 2) [F97616EF], AccurateRip returned [554C2A29] (AR v2)
Copy OK

18 track(s) accurately ripped
2 track(s) could not be verified as accurate
1 track(s) not present in the AccurateRip database

Some tracks could not be verified as accurate

No errors occurred

You can use CUETools to repair this rip.

I reripped with a different drive and got the same results (CRCs match previous rips). Given that should I accept the rip as okay - or should I use CUEtools to repair as suggested? (And if so how do I set up CUETools?)

Any advice much appreciated!

I've encountered several reissued discs of an artists' discography to be defective before pressing. The masters were obviously identical to an earlier pressing but several tracks had audible pops, and thus the whole CDs had non-matching AR results. So sometimes the audio data goes bad not on our side but on theirs, too. Another reason for me besides better mastering of old issues to rather hunt down used CDs instead of buying new ones.
