Easy Audio Copy is at least as reliable and exact as Exact Audio Copy as they are based on the same extraction methods. Easy Audio Copy benefits from various optimisations which increase extraction speed but ensure the reliability. The main difference is the interface which is much simpler and can be used without any background knowledge of the processes involved.
The website says, at a minimum, you'd need windows 7 just to qualify to use it.
It seams to me slow. It did not ask me where will be copied the tracks.
It takes 10 CDs to configure the program to your optical drive. Ripping will take longer during this process. Files are stored in %music% by default (C:\Users\yourusername\Music\AudioFormat). This can be changed using the Advanced Options Tool (available later).If someone were willing to translate, a French version might be possible.
Sorry if I say these bad things
The option tools will be very useful for me. It's not easy for me to have to search where are the tracks and to copy them elsewhere.
What about ripping only a few tracks from different cd's, to create a compilation ?
I don't know why Andre didn't provide a link. I'll need to get permission to post a link here.
CueTools does all this already superbly and it's open source/free. Secure rips with few settings needing adjustment by the user.This looks like a cash-in on the strength of Exact Audio Copy's strong reputation.
Hmm, this explains why development of Exact Audio Copy looked like it had stopped. Any word on whether Andre is planning to continue development of both programs?(My apologies if the answer is on the website...I cannot reach it right now for some reason.)
SHA-1 checksum matching
So, it can search by bar code... the bar code I have on the cd is with numbers and 3 letters. But he likes only numbers.
Sorry, I have no time to report anything or to ask support.I was curious to try it and five minutes ago I uninstalled it.
