HI there all. I'm new here and this is my first post of what will probably be many. Great forums you have here smile.gif

Right, this is driving me mad! I plan to get a Squeezebox2 very soon and am starting to rip my CD's ready.

I personally think that backing up CD's should always be done with an image (compressed) and a cue file as it's easy then to re-encode for various other uses is the best method, at least for me anyway., just as long as the players you use work with cue sheets. Especially as i have many CD's which require gapless playback.

However, when i use EAC and FLAC i run into a couple of problems;

1. It's either that the cue file is always incorrect and needs manual editing (OR it could be that EAC is actually naming the FLAC file incorrectly). What happens is that my audio file ends up being called MYFILE.FLAC.FLAC but the CUE file references a file called MYFILE.FLAC. This only happens with FLAC, not Ogg Vorbis. What am i doing wrong?

2) EAC never creates folders when i rip to an image (single file). It creates the folders fine if i rip to many individual track files. I am using the naming scheme "%A\%C\%N - %A - %T". This seems to happen regardless of which encoder i use. Is this a bug? Am i doing something wrong? Can it be fixed?

Also, can CDex do this kind of ripping? I have tried it but the CDDB access never works.

Ok, REACT is too complicated for me. I can't firgure out how to use it with Flac or create the directories i want. I need a newbie guide for it, but it all seems to be aimed at very experienced users.

Also, entering .fla does not work with EAC. It creates the WAV file ok, but then does not delete it after the Flac finishes and i end up with a file something like Gtmp1!542.fla.

It's all very strange. I'm finding it all very frustrating. All i want is a to make a .flac image with a WORKING cue file and not have to manually create lots of directories. I am starting to get very frustrated with EAC in all honestly.

Is there an alternative that can do what i want?

This suggests that you are terminating EAC before the external compression process has finished.

I'd suggest you give Synthetic Soul's batch scripts a try, that's probably as close as you'll get to a one-click solution for your needs.
