: Kloniranje diska jednostavno "ne zna" šta je sadržaj diska (niti je to bitno) i prosto radi to što mu je i namena pravi binarni klon izvornog diska.
Već smo imali priču o ovome, audio disk nije pravljen kao neki običan komp disk, pa se ni kopiranje ne radi na isti način. Evo jednog teksta koji sam tada našao:
Audio extraction basics
Computers CD ROM drives are mainly made for reading... CD ROMs !
A CD ROM contains files, like the hard disc of the comlputer, and they can be copied from the CD ROM to the Hard Disc.
Audio CDs don't contain files. The data is stored a bit differently. A computer can recognize an audio CD. When you play an audio CD with Windows Cd Player, Windows doesn't read the CD, it just sends an internal "play" command to the drive. The the drive, plugged into the soundcard, plays the CD by itself. The audio data are not read by the computer in this process.
But for audio processing purposes, programs were made that can perform a "Digital Audio Extraction" (DAE). They read the audio data, and convert it (without changing it) into files for computers. These are WAV files.
Any burning program : Nero, EasyCD, etc can perform a DAE. At the beginning, not all CD ROM drives were capable of DAE ! Now, more and more multimedia players (Windows Media Player 7, Winamp 3 ...) play audio CDs performing a DAE and sending the data to the soundcard internally, without cable, instead of asking the drive to play the CD with a sound quality that could vary from drive to drive.
But for a reason I couldn't explain because I don't know it (Laziness ? Patented algorithms ?), Audio extraction programs don't reproduce the playback of CD Players.
During this playback, three levels of error correction occurs :
The C1 level is quite active, and corrects the erroneous raw data, that is not readable error free. The presence of this error correction level allows to store much more data on a CD than if the raw data was required to be read reliably without error correction.
The C2 level is less active, it corrects the errors that couldn't be corrected in the C1 level.
Last, when the C2 level fails, the original data can't be guessed any more. Then the player "fills the gap" with some interpolated (=guessed) data.
This last step is not performed by audio extraction programs !
This step occurs very rarely on brand new CDs in good players. Usually never. So when you rip a CD, the result is often perfect.
But if your original CD is not perfect, if it is a CDR that was poorly burned, if it has scratches, or fingerprints, or if it's old and no more in perfect state, the last error "concealment" process is required for getting good sounding results.
Otherwise, and it is the case in computers, there are audible clicks in the extracted file.
EAC was developed to detect these clicks during the extraction, and trying to read again and get a proper result for the faulty data. Other programs have some options of this kind, like CD EX, or CDP32, but they don't match EAC, that is very complete and has a lot of advanced options for audio error detection and recovery.
