- * Comparison ripping (also called copy-test ripping) where multiple copies are made and compared. Max makes 3 copies by default, reading dummy sectors in-between reads to defeat drive-caching.
* Jitter correction, waiting for the drive to report a error then "backing up", reading the sectors again, and aligning the bits so they perfectly overlap.
* Reading the C2 error code information directly off the disc and making sure the checksums all match up.
An example is Northern Exposure 2 Exp01. This is the single-track edition from the UK; the track is 1:12:31. Around 1:06:51 into the track there is a pop, followed by another pop about 2 seconds later, and then another pop about 2 seconds after that. However Max reported no errors during the rips nor during the comparison.
If the pops are being caused by the disc, is there any way for Max to tell me the disc has not been perfectly ripped? I wouldn't mind so much except Max didn't report any errors at all. If I knew there was an error I could pull out the polishing pads and try again, but without any errors there's no way for me to know about the pops except listening to every rip.
