CD Ripping for Idiots

Hey its me again.

W

Hey, Just wondering what the consensus is on Ripping software.

I am guessing it is EAC. Is that correct? Is there something better?

I was gonna try an upload ...... thanks, db.

For Windows, yes. have 2 blank cdr's and 2 commercial cd's that happen to be in the database while configuring EAC for read / write offsets. I've had this tutorial in my favorites. Not sure if it is out dated. http://roozster.info/eac/

Re: CD Ripping for Idiots

Hey Daddy.
I havent tried doing anything like this in years. I dont even have EAC on this computer.

I was busy in '01 & '02 when SHN was all the rage.

I had a box of SHN Dead shows that went away cause I couldnt see keeping them around. (did I mention I was an idiot?)

I used that and MKW alot then.

sounds like EAC is still relevant. (It is still relevant, isnt it?)

BTW, the Blackhawks are dirty ratbastards !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Canucks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it can, but i'm liking XLD better for ripping now...i don't believe xACT gives you the ability to correct for offsets or save the extraction log

Re: CD Ripping for Idiots

I realize that DranoBlueslick is (appropriately) going with XLD. The stuff below is about EAC and he can ignore it. It is here for anyone else who might come to this thread searching for EAC info in the future.

---

Try the EAC documentation at http://blowfish.be/eac/ first. It was last updated in 2009. Randytravis, thank you very much for the blowfish.be link! I added it to the Wikipedia EAC article. Good documentation for EAC is rare.

The other link given above (roozster.info) has pretty old info in it. That info is a mirror of the quite old SatCP website called The Coaster Factory. The URL where that website used to be is below.

http://users.telenet.be/satcp/

As you can see if you surf to that link SatCP has taken his documentation off of the web because of "lack of time and fading interests I couldn't keep the website up to date anymore. I left the website online for archival purposes, but the information on it was outdated and sometimes even incorrect." It appears that that website "closed" in mid/late 2007.

You can also find old versions of the SatCP website in the Archive.org cache. It's just a guess on my part, but that configuration information was probably last significantly updated in 2005/2006. Even so, I have found that info to be somewhat useful in the past.

Re: CD Ripping for Idiots
