Could you possibly post a guide on ripping with eac?
I'm pretty sure this is the guide I used....EAC Guides

The UI is a bit quirky, but if you have a .wma player this will rip CDs to .wav, then you can convert tracks to .wma. I can't detect any difference between .wma @192 and .mp3 @320 except the .wma file is smaller. Great for sticking a lot of tunes on a CD for your car stereo.
I'd be interested in knowing if there is any difference between the 2.

informative article. To bad iTunes doesn't support many of those formats.

anybody got a suggestion for a media player?
I tried media monkey. Disgusting interface not to mention the third party plugins rarely work.
Doubletwist didn't support my iPhone which was a bummer cause at least they had a decent interface even if it was ripping off of iTunes.

Exact audio copy is what I use. And it's not command line only. There is a guide online for setting up exact audio copy that I have used with very good results.

I want to add something in this discussion .

Generally a music rip may be of two types - lossless and lossy . The common lossless formats for windows are wav and flac , another popular format is apple lossless code. Among them, we may use wav format to rip (it will rip the exact) and if we want something lossy to shrink size, most popular format is mp3.

Both the two are done using WMP12, and nicely.

What about ripping from cd to cd. Is that considered lossy or lossless?

You don't "rip" CD to CD, you "copy" CD to CD...

OMG... isn't it obvious enough???




Alright, since you're so slow, here's the hard cold answer... no, it's not even a rip, it's not lossy or lossless, it's a copy - as in EXACT COPY... good grief...
