apologies for the newb questions but..
I did as much searching as I could on this forum and was not able to find what I was looking for.

I have the Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-1633S drive which EAC tells me is "Adapter: 1 ID: 2"

chris myden's site (and others) only lists the following adapters config files:

[Adapter1 - ID0].cfg
[Adapter1 - ID1].cfg

logic would dictate I should use the [Adapter1 - ID2].cfg file should one exist but I haven't been able to find it.
if one doesn't exist, which file do you experts recommend I use?
if one does exist, where might a pathetic newbie find it? 

also, I have a second drive which is a Toshiba DVD-Rom SD-M1612
EAC tells me this one is the following: Adapter:1  ID: 3

I wasn't able to find a [Adapter1 - ID3].cfg file out there.  again, if one doesn't exist which file do you recommend I use?

and for the last question...

I'm using the EAC V0.95 beta 3 along with lame 3.97b.
my command line is as follows: -V 2 --vbr-new

EAC isn't having any problems ripping the track. the problem I'm having is that it's not encoding.  as soon as the rip is done lame will appear for about a tenth of a second and disappear.  all that I get is the .wav file rip in my directory.  yes, I *have* verified EAC knows the location of the lame.exe file.

if it makes any difference here's the log file information:

I can't really answer your first question.

I would simply go into the drive settings and set up the config yourself.  It may be worth looking at the Coaster Factory tutorials.  There's really not that much that needs changing.

According to the read offset for you LiteOn is +12 (as it is with my SOHW832S) and for your Toshiba it is -472 (as it was for my old SD-M1502).

With regard to your command line, you have no source or destination specified.  Try:

-V2 --vbr-new %s %d

Edit: a lot of people pefer to tag their files using LAME rather than EAC.  It may be worth checking out the wiki for some tips.
