I recently began archiving my cd collection to FLAC. After reading this article (http://www.kenrockwell.com/apple/itunes.htm) (scroll down to the heading "Error Correction"), I am wondering. A couple of my cd's have errors on them. Is there a way to do this sort of error correction with in Linux?

I use RubyRipper with Karmic Koala.
This rips each track 2 (or more) times and compares them for differences caused by reading/ripping errors.
But if a CD is damaged I don't think it can repair that type of error.
There's information here:-http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=Rubyripper
