: '''Tip #1''': If you're concerned that your drive caches audio data even though EAC is saying otherwise, try ripping a scratched disc (one known to produce errors easily).  Make sure you uncheck the "Drive caches audio data" setting AND uncheck the "Drive is capable of retrieving C2 error information" setting.  Make sure you also set the error recovery quality to "Low" (this setting can be found under the Extraction tab in the [[EAC Options]] dialog). If EAC is capable of displaying a ''read'' error then cache flushing isn't necessary.  Ignore any sync errors that may be displayed; they are irrelevant to this test.

: '''Tip #2''': Tip #1 is all you need to know, but if you're still paranoid that your drive caches audio, feel free to try {{brokenlink|http://www.feurio.com/English/Download/download_install.shtml|Feurio's}} audio caching test (Ctrl+Alt+P\Test device\Cache test) or spath's [https://club.myce.com/t/cache-explorer/167099 cache explorer] (also forked as [https://github.com/xavery/cachex cachex]). Tests should be performed with an audio CD in the drive. If either determine that your drive doesn't cache or caches less than 64 KB of data, then cache flushing isn't necessary (ignore the reported buffer size when using cache explorer).  The reason for the 64 KB barrier is that EAC will never request less than this amount while ripping [http://web.archive.org/web/20140626091839/http://www.digital-inn.de/threads/cache-detection-in-eac.32972 link]).

: '''Note''': If "Drive has 'Accurate Stream' feature" is deselected, then "Drive caches audio data" is automatically checked, regardless of whether the drive actually caches audio data.
