  1. I am ripping my CDs using dbPoweramp with all the various error correction etc. turned on and now am wondering how to interpret what is happening and what it means. Some examples: 1) Brand new CD fresh out of the wrap. Seems to rip fine but at the end most of the tracks report as inaccurate in Accurate Rip. 2) Second brand new CD fresh out the wrap. Found in accurate rip seems to rip fine but then at the end of the rip I get a report that some of the tracks are inaccurate, some are accurate and some are not in accurate rip. When I redo the rip the result is identical including the CRC values. 3) Next brand new CD fresh out of the wrap. Rips fine with no errors and all tracks are accurate according to accurate rip. The first and second CDs are less popular and more obscure music although the last one is not exactly a common disc either. So what can I conclude from this? -The CD reader in my computer is capable of reading a brand new CD accurately (point 3). -Does the CD reader in my computer take some time to warm up or is it variable in its capability? Possible, but as per point 2 I redo the rip and get identical "errors". If this was the case I would have expected it to change from one run to another. -Are the CDs I am buying substandard fresh out of the wrap? I am buying them online from Amazon so I would assume they should be good quality proper CDs. -The numbers from Accurate Rip may not be that accurate. With less common music their stored numbers may be wrong. I am not sure of the details of how they get these values so not sure of the possibility for errors. Anyone able to shed some light on this or give me some suggestions on this "problem" and what I should do?
