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
EAC already has all the mirrors to select from. Just go to EAC -> freedb options -> freedb server drop down menu. I just tried the Austrian mirror, it works for me... Maybe you have some kind of connection problems... maybe your EAC can't access the net because of your firewall or smth.
At some point yesterday freedb just stopped working. I have been trying to get it to work or to find alternatives ever since and I had no luck. EAC reports "Error - cannot connect to host" or "Error - Server Error" or "HTTP Protocol Failure" after searching for 30 seconds or so. I have the URL for the server set to "http://freedb.freedb.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi" I am running Vista 32bit and I was not having any trouble until some point yesterday. Are the freedb servers down?
I can't access the FreeDB server through EAC. I can access it through FB2K, I can ping the servers and it works. I have scrolled through all the mirrors and no dice in EAC... what is going on?UPDATE: I just tried a complete reinstall of EAC and REACT... no dice.
Try Bilbo's suggestion, it worked for me.
I can't access the FreeDB server through EAC.
Has anyone tried http://freedb.musicbrainz.org:80/~cddb/cddb.cgi?
When it comes to using them with EAC I wouldn't say either was better than the other.
This happens from time to time and I am experiencing it as well.Try again later or try freedb2.
