ANyone here use EAC? I went to the site, and it's still in "beta" form? It mentions that only advanced users should try it, and I'm not sure I qualify.

I was hoping to get some information on it, I know it's highly respected, I'm just wondering how easy it is to use, if it's still the "beta" format and if that's a problem at all.

I don't understand MD5 files so that might tell you where I'm at computer wise...but I do understand PAR files, I've used them after downloading the program and figuring it out myself.

I find computer stuff not hard to learn because it's generally linear, but I'm not very confident or knowledgeable...imho...so I'd appreicate a "normal language" opinion on how easy it is to use.

It's easy to use - don't let any cautions scare you off.

Here's a link to some tutorials:

Then click on the left hand side on "download' and use either the version with or without CDRDAO.



I learned something today myself...new and improved security at work won't allow me to open up any .exe files that I download....that sucks!

I need to go check and make sure I can at least download music still!

One of our LAN guys is originally from Georgia and a big Allman fan...maybe he can help me out....

Hey it works great, thanks again Benjamin!

I didn't know i could burn with it too...much better than Sonic RecordNow because I can adjust the speed of the burn..although when I set it for 1x, it still burned at 7-8x.

Are you still able to download music?

Didn't check yet - but I think so.

Good to see that you have EAC working now....

OK, I downloaded EAC today. Easy installation and rip of cd to hard disk. Now I can't seem to get EAC to locate the ripped files so I can burn a cd.

It has to be simple but what am I doing wrong?

Stuart,

Did you make a new folder for your show?

Decide where you are going to store your music, for example, My Documents, then make a new folder in My Documents before opening EAC.

Say you are going to rip ABB 9/16/71, which is 3 discs. Name your folder ABB9.16.71, open that folder to make 3 sub folders for each disc.
ABB_9.16.71_1
ABB_9.16.71_2
ABB_9.16.71_3
Now, close My Documents.

In Secure Mode (F8):
Place disc 1 in the cd-rom drive then open EAC. The tracks will populate the window. Click Edit, then "select all"....
Click Action, then "copy selected tracks".

In the top window of the next frame, locate your Disc 1 file in Documents.
In the bottom frame , type in your file name ABB_9.16.71_1.
Click save, extraction will begin.
When extraction is complete ( you will be prompted), resume same steps with the next disc.

Always rip in secure mode with no other programs running on your machine...... good luck!

Libby,

Thanks for taking the time to walk me through this. I got the rip down so I could pass the vine along. Going to see how I do with the burn as soon as I get some free time.
