EAC: how do I automatically organize each album into its own folder?
I'm able to send my ripped CD's into a file named "EAC Music" but it sends each individual song into the folder, so doing multiple CDs sends all of the tracks into one big mess. How do I change the EAC settings to automatically organize each album into its own folder?

I do it manually and while I don't use EAC, the concept is the same. The discs get ripped into a 'TEMP' directory an then copied to the final destination. It's not cumbersome as I don't rip a lot of discs at once. Rip a disc, move it and rip the next. It's just a procedure you get in to.

EAC -> EAC Options -> Filename tab

All the placeholders are listed there so that you can build whatever path/filename pattern you want - here's a common one:

Code: [Select]
%albumartist%\%albumtitle%\%tracknr2% - %title%


That would give, for example:

Radiohead\In Rainbows\01 - 15 Step.wav
"Not sure what the question is, but the answer is probably no."
