Re: I've got flac files on CDs -

^^^what they said.

plus, before you create the torrent:

This might not be necessary, but I've read that sometimes there's trouble when trying to create a torrent from read-only files. To easily fix this:
1) right-click the folder you just copied to your computer and select "properties"
2) uncheck the "Read-only" box and click "Apply"
3) select "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders, and files" then click "OK"
4) click "OK" to exit properties.

Now the next part is a must: If the set is SHN or APE, check the md5s! If your set is FLAC, drag and drop all the FLACs into FLAC frontend and click "Test". I was at a friend's place recently and it sometimes took several attempts to get data files off of data cdrs before they passed these tests.
