EAC: external encoder gave an error
I'm talking about lame, i'm using the 3.99.5 version of lame.exe in eac to encode my mp3from a regoular audio cd.

I've putted -V2 in command line.
Then the rip to mp3 starts, eac copy the song and at the end of the first song the message appears: external compressor gave an error.

I've tried also with different command line such as --preset standard etc but this message always appears.
I'm beginning to think it's an eac error nor properly due to the encoder.
What could it be?

First and foremost: Have you added, at the very least, the %source% and %destination% placeholders? Or perhaps they’re still accessed via %s and %d in your version, since you didn’t deign to mention which one it is. Either way, you didn’t mention these in your quoted command-lines, and nothing will work if they are missing.

Then why did you post it in MP3 - Tech, not CD Hardware/Software? Anyway, if my suspicion above is correct, it’s neither: it’s a user error.

Ok i followed the guide but i think there's something wrong with it.
It says to write -V2 %s %d but it doesn't work.
the correct form is -V2 %source% %dest%

Now it works.

Important note

This guide is in need of an update, because in EAC 1.0 beta 2, the replacement strings changed. For example:
* "%s" is now "%source%"
* "%d" is now "%dest%"
* "%a" is now "%artist%"

It says this at the top of the guide

You just ignored my post outright, didn’t you?
