EAC to FLAC single file add unwanted wrong tag
I use EAC v1.3 to make backups of my cd collection.
Configuration of EAC is based on the well known internet guides for this.
Menu option used: Action: ->Copy image & Create Cue Sheet -> Compressed
External encoder: flac.exe v1.3.2

So I get three files per cd. The .flac file, the .cue file end the .log file
I do not want any tags in the .flac file, but the .flac file is tagged with the title of the 2nd track of the album.
Because I have only one file per album this is incorrect.

I spend hours on this and but cannot find a clue for this.

All help appreciated.

-8 -V -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "ALBUMARTIST=%albumartist%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr%" -T "TRACKTOTAL=%numtracks%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "COMMENT=%comment%" -T "PERFORMER=%albuminterpret%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" %source% -o %dest%

That's easy.

Use
Code: [Select]
-8 -V %source% -o %dest%
or even
Code: [Select]
-8 -V --no-padding %source% -o %dest%
please.

To make things even simpler, you don't need "-V" or "-o %dest%".

Also, I would suggest not using "-8" as some players have problems with that much compression.  Just delete it and you'll be at the default (-5).  You lose very little in terms of space.

I suspect that all those hardware players are currently dead.
