hooray, clearing my DNS cache and changing to the US mirror did the trick for me.

Why don't you try another freedb server, like some localised one.

Here's the link to Austrian freedb server: http://at.freedb.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi


  You beauty ... this has been really annoying me now for a while.. some CD's worked, but the majority came up with the various errors listed & discussed in detail ..

Well for the first time of trying this work around ... & BiNGO!! -100% Spot On!!!!

I've written a utility to fix this and stuck it on CodePlex at:
http://eacfreedbfixer.codeplex.com/

Hope this helps someone (I find it useful but feedback on codeplex appreciated).

Basically I found that EAC was making bad requests to freedb (maybe it worked once and freedb has been upgraded?). This utility sits as a proxy between EAC and freedb and fixes up the requests on the way through.

Hopefully EAC will be fixed to make this unnecessary in the future.
