"The external compressor returned an error" and then a long list of details, shown in the attached photo. It does this after every track, but processes it anyway when I hit enter. I just have to do that for every track on a cd. I'm pretty lost. Just trying to rip to MP3 (decided FLAC + MP3 is too hard to set up). I've set up LAME to be my external processor. Running Windows 7 Home Premium, EAC 1.0 beta 3, and the newest version of lame(3.99). The naming scheme options I have set up in EAC are %tracknr2% - %artist% - %title%. I think the error may be related to this, but I'm not sure.

Can someone help me out? I bet it's happened to someone else, too..

You want MP3 but the commandline you have there is for FLAC. Easiest solution is to just re-run the "Configuration Wizard" (EAC > Configuration Wizard).
