EAC (Exact Audio Copy) Guide


Installation

1. Download Exact Audio Copy (EAC) from .EAC's web site

2. Download the Windows Installer package and install it on your computer.

3. Download an external encoder for the audio format you wish to use.(Use Google)

4. Extract the audio encoder from the zip file to EAC's installation folder by opening the zip file that the encoder
EXE file is in and then opening the directory where EAC is installed in (C:\Program Files\Exact Audio Copy). Now,
click on the EXE file in the zip file and drag and drop it into EAC's installation folder.


Configuration Wizard

(1.) When you first launch EAC a configuration wizard will start up. This wizard will help you through initially
setting up EAC. Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_welcome.png


(2.) On this screen, select the CD-ROM drives you would like EAC to configure. Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_cd-rom.png


(3.) On this screen, click I prefer to have accurate results. This will have EAC setup your drives for secure ripping.
Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_extractpref.png


(4.) EAC will look at it's CD drive database and determine whether or not it detects your drive in its database.
If it detects your CD drive in its database it will provide you with a list of known settings that were reported to
work with your drive. You can select Use these values to configure this drive if you would like to use the known
settings for your drive. Or, if you don't trust those settings you can click I don't trust these features, detect the
features for my drive and this will have EAC detect the features of your drive when you click the Next button. Note
that you will need to have an audio CD in the CD drive you wish to detect the features of. If you have chosen Use
these values to configure this drive then please skip to step 7. Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_featdb.png


(5.) EAC will now detect the features for your drive. After you have inserted an audio CD into your drive,
click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_featdetect.png


(6.) In this window, EAC will display to you the features it has detected for your CD drive. Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_featresults.png


(7.) After EAC has configured all of your drives it will display this window. Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_driverating.png


(8.) On this screen, EAC will attempt to detect and setup the LAME MP3 encoder for use with EAC. Make sure that the
LAME.EXE file is located on your computer (preferabbly in the EAC installation folder) and click Next.


eac_setupwiz_encoderconfig.png


(9.) On this screen, click Use LAME standard settings and put a check beside Let EAC create ID3 tags (ID3V1.1 and ID3V2).
Click Next to this window.


eac_setupwiz_lameconfig.png


(10.) On this screen, type in your email address so that you can use the freedb service for retrieving track
information for your audio CDs from the Internet and click Next.


eac_setupwiz_freedb.png


(11.) On this screen, select I am an expert, let me use the full potential of EAC. Don't worry, I will walk you
through what settings to configure. We want to select the expert setting here so all settings are available to you
that are mentioned later in this guide. Click on Finish to end the configuration wizard.


eac_setupwiz_done.png


About Secure Mode
Code:
Secure mode is a mode in EAC where every sector on the disc is reread at least twice. If an error is detected, EAC will reread that same sector up to a maximum of 16 times. If two identical results are not achieved, EAC will display an error. At the end of the ripping process EAC will show you where that error occurred and allow you to listen to that part of the track so you can determine whether or not the error is audible. Secure mode is slower than traditional ripping modes because of the error correction it offers.

About Test and Copy Mode
Code:
Test and Copy is a feature in EAC where EAC generates a Test CRC value of an audio track on a CD and then compares that value to a Copy CRC value generated from the extracted audio file. If the Test CRC and Copy CRC match then the rip was accurate. If those values do not match then rip was not accurate. Test and Copy mode is best used with Burst mode. Burst mode is the mode in EAC that uses no error correction during the ripping process. Even without error correction, accurate rips are possible. Test and Copy works best on CDs with minimal or no scratches. Test and Copy will allow you to achieve accurate results without the slower speed of Secure Mode. If you get inaccurate results using Test and Copy you can re-rip those tracks again with Test and Copy to see if accurate results are produced or you can re-rip those tracks using Secure Mode.



Setting Up Drives


1. Select the drive you wish to configure from the drop-down menu.


eac_drive_dropdown.png


2. Click EAC, Drive Options.


eac_filemenu_drive.png


3. Click OK to the message that appears.

4. Insert an audio CD into the selected drive and click Detect Read Features. If this process is completed within
seconds, the test was not accurate. Restart EAC and repeat the steps above.


eac_driveoptions.png


5. When the test finishes, click Apply to the window that appears.

6. Select Secure mode and disable C2 Error Correction if enabled. For Secure Mode ripping, it is best to leave this
disabled. Repeat the above steps for remaining drives.

7. Select Secure mode if you wish to use Secure Mode ripping described above or select Burst mode if you wish to use
Test and Copy described above.

8. Click OK.




Setting Exact Audio Copy Options


1. Click EAC, EAC Options.


eac_filemenu_options.png


2. Click the Extraction tab.


eac_options_extraction.png


3. Leave all options at default settings on this screen but change Error recovery quality to High.

4. Click the General tab.


eac_options_general.png


5. Leave all unmentioned options at their default settings but change the following options according to your needs.

6. Enable Use alternate CD player routines if your CD/DVD drive is not directly connected to your sound card via a
cable. This will enable you to hear audio played back from an audio CD using EAC.

7. Enable Disable 'CD Autostart' for audio and data CDs while EAC running if you would like EAC to stop CDs from
popping up a menu after they are inserted into the drive.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option to prevent enhanced CD autoruns from loading on you before ripping.

8. Enable On unknown CDs, and select automatically access online freedb database if you would like EAC to access the
freedb database to retrieve artist, album, and track information automatically when a CD is inserted.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option so that you will not have to manually access the freedb database everytime you insert an audio CD.

9. Enable Ask before overwriting files if you would like EAC to prompt you before overwriting existing files.

10. Enable Show status dialog after extraction if you would like EAC to show a dialog message after every CD is
extracted letting you know the status of the rip.
Code:
Recommendation: If you are using Secure Mode to rip then enable this option. If you are using Test and Copy then you can disable this option.

11. Enable Beep after extraction finished if you would like EAC to have your computer sound a beep after every CD
is done ripping. Note that if you enable encoder queuing (mentioned in the Tools tab) with this setting enabled
then you will hear 2 beeps everytime an encoding session has finished.
Code:
Recommendation: Disable this option so that you can use the encoder queuing option in the Tools tab without being annoyed by two beeps everytime an encoding session finishes.

12. Enable Eject CD after extraction finished if you would like EAC to eject the CD from your drive when ripping
is complete.

13. Click the Tools tab.


eac_options_tools.png


14. Leave all unmentioned options at their default settings but change the following options according to your needs.

15. Enable Create '.m3u' playlist on extraction if you would like EAC to create a .m3u playlist file containing all
the ripped tracks to an album after extraction.
Code:
Recommendation: Disable this option as most players now use internal media libraries that read the tags of your audio files and builds its own browsing database so you can find an album and listen to it.

16. Enable Automatically write status report after extraction if you would like EAC to write a .log file containing
the status of the rip.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option because it never hurts to review the status of a rip (whether you used Secure mode or Test and Copy mode). For Test and Copy mode, the log file will contain the CRC values of the audio CD track and extracted track.

17. Enable On extraction, start external compressors queued in the background if you would like EAC to queue encoding
tasks in the background while ripping. This will allow EAC to start ripping the next track on the audio CD while the
current track is still encoding to MP3 or whatever audio codec if you chosen to compress to. If this option is
disabled, you must wait for the encoding process to finish before the next track can begin extraction. You can change
the number of processing threads the encoder uses but only change this if you know you have a Hyperthreading supported
CPU.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option because it will speed of the ripping process and allow you to continue ripping a new CD while the other CD is still encoding.

18. Enable Do not open external compressor window if you would like EAC to prevent command-line external encoder
windows from popping up during the encoding process.
Code:
Recommendation: Disable this option to avoid being annoyed by the command-line window popping up on you.

19. Click the Filename tab.


eac_options_filename.png


20. In the Naming scheme text box, adjust the way you would like your ripped files to be organized. Some examples
of organization are below:

For regular albums (Naming scheme):

* Artist\Album\Track # Title.mp3: %A\%C\%N %T
* Artist\Album\Artist - Album - Track # - Track.mp3: %A\%C\%A - %C - %N - %T

For various artist albums (Use various artist naming scheme):

* Compilations\Album\Track # Title.mp3: Compilations\%C\%N %T
* Various Artists\Album\Track # - Artist - Title.mp3: Various Artists\%C\%N - %A - %T

21. Click the Directories tab.


eac_options_directories.png


22. Enable Ask every time (default showing last used directory) if you would like EAC to prompt you before the start
of each CD ripping asking which directory you would like to rip the tracks to.
Code:
Recommendation: Disable this option.

23. Enable Use this directory and click Browse to select a directory if you would like all tracks ripped to
automatically be placed in this main directory. Subdirectories of Artist\Album will automatically be created if
you set this up in the Filename tab.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option.

24. Click OK.



Setting freedb/Database Options

1. Click EAC, freedb/Database Options.


eac_filemenu_freedb.png


2. Type your e-mail address into the Your E-mail address text box. Your e-mail address is only used by the freedb
for submission purposes and can help the freedb if you submit modifications to a recent submission. You will not
receive any spam by placing your e-mail address here. For EAC to be able to use the freedb database, an e-mail address
must be placed in this text box.


eac_freedb_freedb.png


3. Sometimes freedb servers can go down resulting in the inability to get CD information. If you ever notice that
the freedb database doesn't seem to be working, you can change the freedb server that EAC uses. If that happens you
can go to the freedb mirrors page and get a list of addresses to freedb mirror servers. After you pick an address
to use, enter it into the Freedb server text box. Just replace the http://freedb.freedb.org text with the address
to the mirror server. For example, if you were using the mirror, au.freedb.org, you would replace the
http://freedb.freedb.org text with http://au.freedb.org and the contents of the Freedb server text box should look
like this: http://au.freedb.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi

4. Click OK.



Setting Compression Options

MP3 (Lame 3.97)

1. Click EAC, Compression Options.

2. Click the External Compression tab.

interprets as an error. If you experience problems, disable this option.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this option as it seems to work well with the LAME encoder.

13. Ignore the High quality and Low quality radio buttons as they will not be used.

14. Click the Offset tab at the top of the window.


eac_compression_mp3_offset.png


15. In this window, at the bottom, click Write following text into ID3 Tag comment field. You can then type in
anything you would like to be displayed the comment field of the ID3 tags. You can also delete everything out of
that box, as shown below, to have no comment written to the ID3 tags.

16. Click the ID3 Tag tab at the top of the window.


eac_compression_mp3_id3.png


17. Enable Use ID3V1.1 tags instead of ID3V1.0 tags if you would like to write ID3V1.1 tags instead of ID3v1.0 tags.
Code:
Recommendation: Enable this as ID3V1.1 adds support for the track number field.

18. Enable Additionally write ID3V2 tags, using a padding of 4kB if you would like to write ID3V2 tags to your files.
Code:
Recommendation: Leave this enabled and keep a padding size of 4 kB.

19. Enable Use ID3v2.4.0 tags instead of ID3v2.3.0 tags if you would like to write ID3V2.4 tags instead ID3V2.3 tags.
Code:
Recommendation: Leave this option disabled because ID3V2.3 tags are more widely supported than ID3V2.4 tags.

20. Enable Use track format xx/xx in ID3V2 tags (e.g. 01/16) if you would like to write the track numbers in the
ID3V2 tags as track number/total tracks instead of just track number.
Code:
Recommendation: Leave this option enabled unless you don't want the track number/total tracks format.

21. Click OK.

7. In the Additional command line options text box, enter the command-line options you wish to use with the Monkey's
Audio encoder. Command line options tell the encoder what to do such as what bit rate you want, how you want the
files tagged, etc. Below is a table with recommended Monkey's Audio settings. Note that I have added on the tagging
parameters to the command-line to have Wapet tag files with artist, album, and track info. Note, in the command-line
options below, "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" indicates the location of the Monkey's Audio encoder. By
default, if you have installed Monkey's Audio then it will be in this folder, however, if it is not you will have
to change that part in the command-line to point to the correct location of MAC.EXE. Just copy and paste a
command-line listed below into the Additional command line options text box.
Code:
Command-line Setting Name / Info %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" %s %d -c5000 Insane - slowest encoding times, highest compression. %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" %s %d -c4000 Extra High - slower encoding times, higher compression. %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" %s %d -c3000 High - slower encoding times, high compression. %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" %s %d -c2000 Normal - faster encoding times, normal compression. %d -t "Artist=%a" -t "Title=%t" -t "Album=%g" -t "Year=%y" -t "Track=%n" -t "Genre=%m" "C:\Program Files\Monkey's Audio\MAC.exe" %s %d -c1000 Fast - fastest encoding times, lower compression.


8. In the Bit rate drop-down menu select a bit rate closest to the setting you are using with your audio encoder.
This bit rate option has no effect on the bit rate of your encoded audio files. When Parameter Passing Scheme is
set to "User Defined Encoder", this setting is merely used by EAC to estimate file sizes in the main EAC window.
Code:
Recommendation: For Monkey's Audio, you can ignore the bit-rate option here because the highest setting is 320 kbps in the pull-down list and Monkey's Audio bit-rates will be much higher than this.

9. Enable Delete WAV after compression to delete the large WAV file after it has been compressed to your chosen
audio format.

10. Disable Use CRC check.

11. Disable Add ID3 tag.

12. Enable Check for external programs return code if you would like EAC to report to you when an external encoder
has returned an error. This feature works for the most part, however, some encoders may return a value that EAC
interprets as an error. If you experience problems, disable this option.
Code:
Recommendation: Disable this option as I am unsure of how well it works with the Monkey's Audio encoder.

13. Ignore the High quality and Low quality radio buttons as they will not be used.

14. Click OK.



WavPack (WavPack 4.31/4.32)


1. Click EAC, Compression Options.

2. Click the External Compression tab.

3. Enable the Use external program for compression option.

4. Change Parameter passing scheme to User Defined Encoder.

5. In the Use file extension text box type in .wv.

6. In the Program, including path, used for compression text box type in the location of the WAVPACK.EXE file or
click the Browse button to locate the WAVPACK.EXE file.

7. In the Additional command line options text box, enter the command-line options you wish to use with the WavPack
encoder. Command line options tell the encoder what to do such as what bit rate you want, how you want the files
tagged, etc. Below is a table with recommended WavPack settings. Note that I have added on the tagging parameters
to the command-line to have the WavPack encoder tag files with artist, album, and track info. Just copy and paste
a command-line listed below into the Additional command line options text box.

Code:
Command-line Setting Name / Info -w "Artist=%a" -w "Title=%t" -w "Album=%g" -w "Year=%y" -w "Track=%n" -w "Genre=%m" -h %s %d High Quality - Slowest encoding times, highest compression -w "Artist=%a" -w "Title=%t" -w "Album=%g" -w "Year=%y" -w "Track=%n" -w "Genre=%m" -f %s %d Fast Mode - Faster encoding times, lower compression.

14. Click OK.



Saving Profiles

1. To save all the settings you made above to one configuration file so that they can be easily restored at a later
time, click the New button at the bottom of the EAC window.

Start Ripping


1. Insert an audio CD and wait while EAC contacts the freedb database.

2. If you wish to use Secure Mode to rip your audio CDs, click the MP3 button on the left.

3. If you wish to use Test and Copy to rip your audio CDs, click Action, Test & Copy Selected Tracks, Compressed
or press Shift+F6 on your keyboard.

4. During the ripping process a window will appear letting you know the progress of the rip.


eac_main_extracting.png


5. Click OK and another window will appear giving you a detailed analysis of the ripping process. If you are
using Secure Mode to rip, pay attention to this window as it will let you know if errors occurred during the rip
and where those errors occurred. It will also give you the option of listening to portions of a track where an
error occurred to determine whether the error is audible or not.

6. Click OK and you will be taken back to the main EAC window. If you used Test and Copy to rip your CDs you want
to look at the main window to determine if your tracks were all ripped accurately. Look under the Read CRC column.
This column shows the CRC value of the extracted audio file. The Test CRC columns shows the CRC value of the audio
track on the audio CD. If both of these values are the same an "OK" will appear in the CRC column. If the Test CRC
and Read CRC do not match, a "#" will appear in the CRC column indicating your rip was not accurate.
