EAC to FLAC single file add unwanted wrong tag

I use EAC v1.3 to make backups of my cd collection.
Configuration of EAC is based on the well known internet guides for this.
Menu option used: Action: ->Copy image & Create Cue Sheet -> Compressed
External encoder: flac.exe v1.3.2

So I get three files per cd. The .flac file, the .cue file end the .log file
I do not want any tags in the .flac file, but the .flac file is tagged with the title of the 2nd track of the album.
Because I have only one file per album this is incorrect.

I spend hours on this and but cannot find a clue for this.

All help appreciated.

Please paste contents of your "Additional command-line options" box.

-8 -V -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "ALBUMARTIST=%albumartist%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr%" -T "TRACKTOTAL=%numtracks%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "COMMENT=%comment%" -T "PERFORMER=%albuminterpret%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" %source% -o %dest%

That's easy.

Use
Code: [Select]
-8 -V %source% -o %dest%
or even
Code: [Select]
-8 -V --no-padding %source% -o %dest%
please.

To make things even simpler, you don't need "-V" or "-o %dest%".

Also, I would suggest not using "-8" as some players have problems with that much compression.  Just delete it and you'll be at the default (-5).  You lose very little in terms of space.

I suspect that all those hardware players are currently dead.

Thank you all. I tried with only "-5  %source%" as the command line options.
The .flac file is now clean and only 2 MB larger at a filesize of 440 MB than with -8 as compression factor.
Unfortunately the tracktitles are gone in the .cue file.

REM GENRE Pop
REM DATE 2000
REM DISCID 49111018
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v1.3"
FILE "Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show - The Very Best Of.flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    INDEX 01 03:51:15

So I miss the TITLE and PERFORMER per track in the .cue now.
My mediaplayer need this info of course.

That option helped a lot. Performer and Title of the track are now written to the .cue.
Is it possible to avoid that REM Composer ""   and FLAGS DCP is written to the .cue under every track?

Re: EAC to FLAC single file add unwanted wrong tag

FLAGS DCP (Digital copy permitted flag) is read from the CD. This won't be on every CD you rip.
The developer didn't explain in the release notes why REM Composer "" is now added to the CUE in the recent version of EAC. Older versions did not have this.
