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

^as tubular said, if you're getting the exact same ffp/st5 checksums after re-extraction there is no cdr gen since the decompressed data is exact. you can store it in aif format on a jazz disc at the bottom of a bucket of water in your backyard if you like so long as your checksums still match when you retrieve it.

but you need to hang onto those checksums generated from the original files extracted from the silver. so long as those continue to match when you return the files to FLAC your storage system is secure.

however it is a tricky business getting the offsets absolutely perfect and more time-consuming to verify an audio cdr (test for corruption) as compared to FLAC.
