    Trouble Encoding With EAC

    I am using EAC to encode my mp3s, and when it does, it does it perfect. But I noticed that certain CDs that I put in to rip, freeze when I go to rip them. I don't know why this is happening. It seems to be happening to all my older CDs. And some of them are in perfect condition. Do I have my settings wrong possibly?

    Re: Trouble Encoding With EAC

    SCSI or IDE CD-ROM?

    brand/type?


    EAC works fine for me straight out of the box..... there is a auto-config setup, that does some tests on your drive for optimal setup.... have you done that?
    Project - GAME OVER :(

    And there aren't any surface imperfections on the "older cds"? (more so than you "newer cds"?)

    I have older CDs that are close to perfect condition, yet still freeze. The ones with imperfections also freeze. Could it be due to some small scratches?

    try to get through it track by track... rip till it crashes then tell it to start where it left off. you can also use a different ripper as theyre all the same and dont effect quality. the quality comes from EAC in conjunction with LAME
