Where is CDDB.DAT stored in Windows 10 for EAC version 1.3?

Definitely there on my PC (Windows XP), in the EAC folder. It's not a hidden file, but it might be hidden under other O/S (Vista or Win 7), so in Explorer try Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Show hidden files and folders (or whatever the equivalent is under your O/S). Also, maybe under other O/S EAC stores CDDB.dat under your user profile - with XP there is a CDDB.sdf file under C:\Documents and Settings\<your_user_name>\Application Data\EAC, maybe under Vista and Win 7 it stores CDDB.dat there as well, under C:\Users\<your_user_name>\AppData\Roaming\EAC.

But the easiest way to resolve this in the future is to upload your edits back to your metada provider (Alt-U, or Database -> Submit CD Information To Metadata Provider), so they're available to you and everyone else in the future regardless of which machine you're on.

Edit: too slow!

Hi all,

I realize this thread is from 8 years ago, but I'm getting really frustrated trying to get my EAC database from my old machine to my new one. I had hand-entered data for many CDs that I had not yet copied, and was hoping to use it on my new machine. Where is CDDB.DAT stored in Windows 10 for EAC version 1.3?

My version is a little older (0.95) so I can't say I'm right about your case, however mine is stored in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\EAC\
I'm assuming I either accepted the default or chose that as a directory name. Hope that helps.

Finally here is the new version 1.0 beta 1 which has some mighty new features. I took some time (mainly the complete change to unicode character set), but alls well that ends well…
Here comes a list of the new features:
+ New database engine for storing CD information (old databases can be imported)
EAC 1.3 uses CDDB.sdf
You should be able to import CDDB.DAT into EAC 1.3 (Database > Import Database)
CDDB.sdf is stored in %appdata%\EAC\ in Windows 10
