Re: EAC configuration, offsets, etc...

for instructions look at the "checksums" link below in my signature. on my system I get a perfect match.
I have determined that my read offset correction is 102. I then used the earlier thread from tubular to determine that I should enter 30 into EAC for my write offset. I tried converting original flacs to wavs and burning to cd. Then extracting those wavs from that cd... I used EAC to compare and they match! The md5's for these wavs are a match, also.

However, when I encode the newly ripped wav to flac (level 8 encoding) the st5's are a match, but the md5's do NOT match the original flac files. Is this because I use flac8 to encode? What would cause this?
