Yes, it is possible if you created a CUE sheet when you ripped the files:

If you just want to burn some audio tracks to a CD-R, you may want to use Burrrn!

I noted in another thread that you tried and failed at burning with foobar2000.  I suggest you update to latest version of foobar and try again.  No reason it shouldn't work.

No, it is not possible for EAC to burn wavpack or flac directly.

AFAIK, the only lossless format that EAC can handle is Monkey's Audio.

I know you're looking for a "direct" method through EAC, but the easiest way is to just decompress the compressed/lossless files to WAV and then burn with the EAC writer. Just delete the WAV files when you're done.

I find the CD-Writer in EAC to be very good and useful IMO. You can use the free version of dBpoweramp to decompress to WAV. (It's not multi-threaded like the paid version but it won't matter as it only uses one thread to decompress files to WAV anyway.)

If you've created a cue sheet in EAC with multiple WAV files/noncompliant then everything should just work. It's a lot easier than I've made it sound.
