Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

How to rip pregap track with EAC?

I have a CD with a known pregap track before track 1 that I'm trying to rip with EAC v1.5. I've done some searching on the forums and several answers, new and old, say to select track 1 and then go to Action Menu -> Copy Selected Tracks Index-Based. However I don't have this option - I can Copy Selected Tracks but then the only suboption is Compressed or Uncompressed.

Does anyone have any ideas on this? I don't think it's a matter of specific EAC version as I've found identical forum answers from ten years ago and last year, though I suppose the Index-Based menu option could be context-based and related to either my EAC configuration or my CD drive abilities.

EAC > EAC Options > Tools tab
Untick Activate beginner mode, disable all advanced features
    Activate beginner mode, disable all advanced features

        (Default: disabled, Recommended: enabled, unless offset correction needs to be manually entered)

This option is not about whether you are a beginner; rather, it is about whether you have very unusual ripping needs.

When in beginner mode, EAC disables & hides the following "advanced" features:

    In the Action menu:
        Copy Selected Tracks Index-Based (Alt+X / Alt+Shift+X) [rip to separate files for each track index]
