I am having issues trying to rip to FLAC using EAC.

In the Compression Options, I have "Use external program for compression" enabled, "User Defined Encoder" for the parameter passing scheme, and ".flac" for the file extension.

"Program, including path, used for compression":
C:\Program Files (x86)\Exact Audio Copy\Flac\flac.exe

"Additional command-line options":
-8 -V -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr%" -T "TOTALTRACKS=%numtracks%" -T "DISCNUMBER=%cdnumber%" -T "TOTALDISCS=%totalcds%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "ALBUMARTIST=%albuminterpret%" -T "ALBUM ARTIST=%albuminterpret%" -T "BAND=%albuminterpret%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" -T "COMMENT="CRC: %TRACKCRC%" %haslyrics%--tag-from-file=LYRICS="%lyricsfile%"%haslyrics% %hascover%--picture="%coverfile%"%hascover% %source% -o %dest%


Upon compression of the first track, the following error message was returned:



The external compressor returned an error!

Options : -8 -V -T "ARTIST=Bell Boys Music" -T "TITLE=11ish" -T "ALBUM=The Jean Hagen EP" -T "DATE=" -T "TRACKNUMBER=01" -T "TOTALTRACKS=5" -T "DISCNUMBER=1" -T "TOTALDISCS=1" -T "GENRE=" -T "ALBUMARTIST=" -T "ALBUM ARTIST=" -T "BAND=" -T "COMPOSER=" -T "COMMENT="CRC: B2EA68ED" "Btmp556)!.wav" -o "Btmp556)!.flac"

File : C:\Users\JoAnne\Music\CDs\Other CDs\The Jean Hagen EP\Bell Boys Music - The Jean Hagen EP - 01. 11ish.wav



....Can someone smarter than me please tell me what I'm doing wrong? I appreciate it!

Quality refers to the audio, not speed or compression.

The distinction is important, not academic as you would contend, as lossy codecs use quality settings that affects the quality of the audio output. For a lossless codec using the term quality is misleading at best - lossless is lossless.

Aha! I see now where the difference is in our discussion. You see audio quality as a distinct factor from codec performance, while I see audio quality and codec performance both as factors that define the codec's quality--at least when it comes to lossless. Honestly both approaches seem valid to me.

Similarly, I would consider compression ratios, encode/decode time, etc. as part of the overall "quality" view on a lossy codec. (For example, an extremely accurate and compressed, but extremely slow to decode, lossy file would be a problem.) But audio quality/transparency would of course by far be the most important factor.



EDIT: Anyway, to get back on topic...OP, have we helped you?
