Nero AAC & EAC Why Isn't This Working?

I've just decided to rip my small CD collection (200 CD's) into AAC files, and I want to use EAC, as that is the only ripper that I ever used (and want to use). I followed the guide in the Nero AAC Recommended Settings post, I think to a "T", but after the ripping process, nothing happens, and the encoding process just fails!! Some notes as to how I set it up might shed some light as to why it doesn't work: I use the file extension as m4a, then I copy and paste the command line that is in the post, of course, changing the path used for the encoder, and my preference for quality value. I use EAC 0.9 b4, as that is the version I use for Uber standard ripping. Can someone please help me to get this to work correctly? Thanks in advance!

The OP (CheechOZ) asked the following by PM. I decided to answer here so that others can benefit from the answer too... smile.gif
Hi Alex, I'm very interested in ripping my cd collection into the wave cue sheet format, then later having the option to do whatever I want with the files! If you can, I would appreciate if you could point me to any helpful links that will show me the way to do this. Hard drive space is not an issue for me, as I have over 1.3 TB of space blink.gif

Thanks in advance.

I posted my previous reply because it seems that people are trying to do something that is trivial to me in an overly complex way.

Ripping in wav + cue format is very simple in EAC. After you have configured EAC's drive options properly (this part does not differ from ripping to separate track files) you can start ripping from Action > Copy Image and Create CUE Sheet... or by using the Alt+F7 shortcut.

Wave files can't be tagged, but the cue sheet will automatically hold the standard album and track info that you had in EAC before ripping.

Later on you can simply drag the cue sheet (or several cue sheets) to foobar2000 and it will show you the individual album tracks. You can easily convert all or a selection of these tracks to AAC MP4 by using foobar's Convert tool. Foobar will ask the encoder path when it needs it for the first time. (You need to download the free Nero commandline encoder separately.)

Personally, I use EAC's internal Monkey's Audio compression option when I create disc image files. Then the cue files will automatically contain links to the losslessly compressed .ape files instead of the .wav files.
(After the Monkey Audio v.3.99 package is installed this option is available: Compression Options > Waveformat > Monkey's Audio Lossless Encoder v3.99 dll)

However, naturally the AAC conversion is slower if the source file needs to be decoded first. If I were to convert 200 CDs I would use uncompressed wave and compress the disc image files later.
