Bin files are exact copies of a music CD, much like ISO files are for DVDs. If I rip with ImgBurn, is it able to tell me if there were bad sectors or sectors that were jumped/unreadable? What I mean is verifying against the CD doesn't mean much if the CD itself isn't perfect. Will Imgburn alert me of a bad sector in the log?

If the drive reports an error, ImgBurn will display it to you.

When I'm ripping a single uncompressed WAV file with EAC, the log file that comes with the rip says some tracks aren't accurately ripped when compared to others. I tried ripping the whole disc with ImgBurn, but there wasn't any indication of bad sectors or anything wrong. Would my disc be perfect or not? Or maybe Imgburn is letting some of the minor stuff get by and only reports the major issues?

Data sectors have loads of error correction stuff built in, Audio (CDDA) sectors don't.

ImgBurn just asks the drive to read the sectors and return what it reads. As I said before, if your drive reports an error, you'll know about it. If it doesn't, you won't.

EAC, as a dedicated audio cd ripping tool, goes way beyond that.

If you want accurate audio cd rips, stick with EAC. The clue is in the name. :)

That's not to say that the data your drive returns to ImgBurn is useless. I very much doubt you'd be able to tell any difference.

Thanks for detail. Imgburn is great for burning and does a lot of detailed analysis that is useful to know. What tools do you recommend is the best for DVD/Blu-ray surface scans and file scan?

Do you mean for disc quality / PIPO stuff?

All the tools for that are pretty well known.

DVDInfoPro, Opti Drive Control, CDSpeed, PlexTools, KProbe etc.

I'm not aware of it having that functionality at all.

ImgBurn's Verify mode will tell you if a disc is readable, that's a basic surface scan. What you want is to see the quality of the burn and how readable it is. That's where those other tools come in.
