Example text

Why, then, do our grabbed CDs become as crippled as records, also produce hissing and cracking sounds?. This occurs because early CD-ROM drives read Audio CDs “as is,” and didn’t attempt to recover corrupted bytes when they occurred. Furthermore, they didn’t even report the number of these bytes. As a result, application software didn’t have any information and didn’t know what to interpolate! If the corruption involves the least significant bits of a byte, this might remain undetectable to the human ear (even that of a true music lover).

If the corruption involves the least significant bits of a byte, this might remain undetectable to the human ear (even that of a true music lover). However, if corruption involves the most significant bits, this corruption can be heard by the human ear as a sharp click, noticeable even for those who are hard of hearing. ” However, this is a half-measure, as most of you will understand! High-quality audio grabbing on such drives is virtually impossible. Moreover, some CD manufacturers, keen on protecting their products from unauthorized copying, began to introduce a large number of irrecoverable errors into their products intentionally.

However, if four corrupted bits were distributed as follows: 0111111111, the decoder would consider it to be 1111111111, and the restoration would be incorrect. Thus, the correcting capability for a specific code is defined according to the following formula: to detect r errors, the Hamming distance must be greater than or equal to r, while for correcting r errors the Hamming distance must be greater than the duplicated number of errors r by at least one. 5: The correcting capabilities of a simple Hamming code Error detection capability: d >= r Error correction capability: d > 2r Information capacity: 2n/d Theoretically, the number of detectable errors is unlimited, while, in practice, the information capacity of codewords dwindles rapidly with the growth of d.
