I have a CD RIP with EAC V1.0 beta3
Checked with CUETools 2.1.4

CUETools gives me here:
03 [f41e2a14|bc31a59f] (39+08/88) Accurately ripped

So thats means, this track matches with 39 in AR V1 and with 8 in AR V2.
Makes 47 matches alltogether. But there are 88 entries!
Are these 41 other rips, rips with errors? Or maybe different pressings?

Well !
My logical thinking tells me that read errors always occure on different places on CDs right?
So erroneous rips do always have different checksums and none of them matches another, right?
So if I have a confidence 1, its most likely that I have a bit-identical copy. Otherwise me and the other user, we both must have a read error at exactly the same place, so that our checksums are identical, and this is very unlikely right ??
So when I have AR confidence 1 and the database also has many other results I do not match with, its most likely that my rip is correct, and all the others are wrong, (or different pressings) right ???

Ive never really understood this...
If I have a confidence of only 1, my rip is at 99,9999999999999999999999 % a Bit-identical copy, right?

Something along the lines of this as one of many examples that can be found online:

Take from it what you will. I'm not going to spend any more time on the matter. smile.gif
