At some point yesterday freedb just stopped working. I have been trying to get it to work or to find alternatives ever since and I had no luck. EAC reports "Error - cannot connect to host" or "Error - Server Error" or "HTTP Protocol Failure" after searching for 30 seconds or so. I have the URL for the server set to "http://freedb.freedb.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi" I am running Vista 32bit and I was not having any trouble until some point yesterday. Are the freedb servers down?

At Last! I'm back in business. I just fired up Foobar2000 on my machine and asked it to get the tags for an audio cd that I had inserted and it went out to freedb right away. So that gave me a clue that something was wrong or different in EAC. I was poking around in Foobar trying to figure out if there was a way to export the ID3 tags from it so that I could impiort them into EAC. I didn't figure that out but I did find the Console command in the Foobar menu. The console listed the commands and communication sent to freedb to query the tag information for my CD. I noticed that Foobar was using a differnt URL so I copied that url...

http://freedb2.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi

and pasted it into EAC and now things are working again!
