Re: Question about the "no silver CD >> CDR transfer" rule

If you have a good drive and burn and extract (secure) with EAC with the read and write offsets corrected, you could have a CD-R(50) and it would still match the original checksum. Most people burn with Nero I think, so they can't correct their write offset. Maybe in cases where you have corrected your write offset, and burn with EAC, they could make an exception. The only problem might be people lying about their write offset being corrected, or the inability to prove that they burned with the write offset corrected.
I agree with you. That's why I had asked if it would be acceptable if I could provide the EAC .log files with the torrents in question. I always ensure 100% error-free secure rips with EAC before uploading anything or making exact copies of discs. Those logs would serve as proof that the CDR extract was just as secure as the original silver extraction logs (by comparing the two sets to check for 100% error free extractions in both).
