I'm EAC newbie and need help. I want to rip an compress to flac.
EAC Version 1.0 beta 3.
Flac: FLAC - Free Lossless Audio Codec 2001,2002,2003,2004,2005,2006 Josh Coalson from http://flac.sourceforge.net/

I used in compressions options:
checked: use external programm for compression
parameter passing scheme: user defined encoder
use file extetion: .flac
Programm including...: C:\Program Files (x86)\Exact Audio Copy\flac.exe
additional command line: -T "artist=%artist%" -T "title=%title%" -T "album=%albumtitle%" -T "date=%year%" -T "tracknumber=%tracknr%" -T "genre=%genre%" -5 %source%
checked: delete WAV after compression
checked: check for external programs return code

when i "test encoder" everything seems ok: no error occured.

I run EAC "test&copy selected tracks - compressed"

But, it rips and saves in the designated folder in WAV and not .flac

I don't know what else to do? any suggestions?

Iím sure you wonít have to abandon FLAC. Someone else can find something Iíve missed, or whatever. Perhaps if you post a screenshot of your settings page, there will be more information there. In any case, just wait for a while rather than forgetting FLAC altogether!

One thing I can see in your ALAC examples is this discrepancy:
i %s -o %d -d
-i "%coverfile%" -o "%original%" -d "%dest%"
They canít both be right, so thatís probably part of your problem.

Again, thereíll almost certainly be a way to get FLAC working. Be patient!
