Hi all,

i'm new in flac ripping. I installed EAC and configured it. When i tried to rip a CD to flac, at the end of every track, it told me : Warning "The external compressor returned an error".

In the end, all the tracks had been made to .wav files but they hadn't been converted into flac files.

I tried converting the wav files to flac files without EAC, by using the FLAC Front End alone, and it made an error : Run-time error '53': File not found.

When i give as input a wav file with latin caracters there is no problem at all.

So i'm quite sure the problem comes with wav files containing greek caracters in their name.

Does anybody have a solution or any idea about that ?

Thank you

This is the downfall of EAC's reliance on command-line apps instead of DLLs for external encoding. flac.exe is being invoked through a command shell, which is like a DOS prompt, so the characters are converted to what's valid there. This will only be 8-bit characters, whatever your system's ANSI set is (Windows-1252 for most folks). So probably things like and will work but Greek is not an option unless you're using a Greek version of Windows.
