I've been using Exact Audio Copy with LAME 3.99.5 for some time to rip all of my old CDs. In the course of using it, I've come up with several basic questions for more experienced users:

1. Is there any way to have EAC recognize a "hidden track" (i.e. a track with an internal gap) and separate it? So far, I've been doing this manually with WAV Editor.
2. What's the best way to extract pregap tracks?
3. How can I embed album art in MP3s that were compressed from ripped WAVs? So far I've only determined how to do so in MP3s ripped directly from the CD.
4. Is there any way, within EAC, to embed album art that was found manually online, as opposed to EAC's own album art finder?
5. Every once in a while, EAC will create an MP3 that lacks the embedded album art. It's rare, inconsistent, and typically occurs in the middle of the album. Any idea what causes this? Any way to search in Windows for this, other than checking every MP3's thumbnail one at a time?
6. I've had a few badly scratched CDs that reported no errors, yet the reported track quality was 96% or poorer, presumably because EAC had to read the same sectors several times. Would you recommend attempting a rerip?
7. Under what circumstances, if any, would you disable EAC's error correction?
8. What exactly does the WAV "glitch removal" in EAC do?

Index-based method cannot help you if there are no indexes higher than 1 encoded at subcode level. You could extract that track as usual, and split it using a .wav editor. Or determine the proper range to cut, and write a .cue file to split the wav file into two sub-songs.

For example:

FILE "blabla.wav" WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO
INDEX 01 00:00:00
REM Start point of first sub-song.
TRACK 02 AUDIO
INDEX 01 07:00:00
REM Start point of silence.
TRACK 03 AUDIO
INDEX 01 12:00:00
REM Start point of second sub-song.

And preserve the track 2, so that later you can rejoin the three parts and get the original audio track.
