I'm reripping a bunch of CDs to mp3 using EAC and am having a couple of problems.
I have a few CDs that just don't want to copy. EAC rips them to .wav fine, but it nver convets to mp3. A black box pops up for a second or 2 (like when it works) but doesn't stay to copy.
It is set up as inhttp://jiggafellz.isa-geek.net/eac/

Any ideas?

If you still have the wave file, you can bring up a dos window and try and give the command for Lame to create the MP3. This will allow you to see an error message, if one exist as to why it is failing.

I don't see why you're using EAC if you only need MP3 (lossy) files. Use Nero or Foobar and save a lot of time and trouble.

If you have conversion failures with LAME try to read the result messages in the command window (black box).

WinLAME works great for converting wav to mp3, using the LAME encoder

For reference, I fixed the problem. If anybody else has a similar problem, it's an error with LAME that stops it from working if it doesn't like the genre. I changed the genre to "Rock" before ripping in EAC, and it now works
