Re: EAC configuration, offsets, etc...

If you snip off the very last part of the last wav of a set with CD-Wave Editor you won't get a SBE.

I think it was anything that was transferred through a soundcard, data port, or external AD converter: DAT, cassette, MiniDisc, vinyl, reels, hard disk recorder, flash recorder, 8 track , DCC (remember those?) All of these types of transfers would give me problems matching the last track of original filesets with no SBEs on extracting a burned disc with the HL-DT-STRW/DVD GCC-4240N CD-RW/DVD-ROM drive.

But if the transfer was: drive capable of overwriting into lead out > burn audio CD > EAC > WAV > FLAC then there would be no problems matching the last track on extraction on my burned disc, even though my drive can't overwrite on lead out correctly. I'm clueless as to why this is. Sounds crazy, but it happened. Maybe the source audio CD for the FLAC seed wasn't burned with the write offset corrected and/or wasn't extracted with the read offset corrected, and then when I burn with EAC with the write offset corrected on a drive that can't overwrite into lead out, it burns the silence at the end correctly even though it can't overwrite into lead out? Does that make any sense?

Anyway, it doesn't matter now that I have a drive that can overwrite into lead out correctly on every show.
