Okay, question about another audio disc comment.
"Last 48 bytes of Track 25 filled with 00"
This comment, respectfully, makes no sense. The last 48 bytes are not filled with 00. The disc was created with a +18 offset. If you rip the disc with a +30 offset, then sure, you'll have some extra silent samples, but... they're extra. Why would you increase the offset further than the actual data on the disc exists?
+18 is a ridiculously common offset. Off the top of my head, basically every King Records CD ever has an offset of +18. Why do people insist on ripping every CD with the same offset? That's only taking their drive's offset into account, and there are always two offsets to take into account: the offset of your drive, AND the offset of the drive that created the CD. Most of the time we can't know the offset of the mastering drive, but sometimes we can.
I don't understand this personally. You just introduce silent samples by doing it this way, and you miss non-silent samples on other CDs such as La Pucelle by not adjusting the offset further. What's the point of this - for everyone to get the same incorrect results?
