Exact Audio Copy
Exact Audio Copy (EAC) has three options for copying media: Copy Selected Tracks Uncompressed, Copy Selected Track Compressed, and Copy Image and Cue Sheet.
In secure mode EAC either reads every audio sector at least twice or relies on extended error information that some drives are able to return with the audio data. By using this technique non-identical sectors are detected. If an error occurs (read or sync error), the program keeps on reading this sector, until eight of 16 retries are identical, but at maximum one, three or five times (according to the selected error recovery quality) these 16 retries are read. So, in the worst case, bad sectors are read up to 82 times. Exact Audio Copy uses several technologies like multi-reading with verify and AccurateRip.
The software is owned and managed by Andre Wiethoff.
