I'm thinking about archiving my audio CD collection. Obviously (?) I'd want that backup to be in the best possible quality. After some searching, I think the best way would be EAC (Exact Audio Copy) in combination with a FLAC external lossless compression.
I've installed this on my (fast) Win7-64 system and it works. However my BD-drive reduces the read speed of EAC (seems to be a bug as more have that problem); worse is that for each CD I rip, I need to do several steps manually. I'd rather have a system where I could just insert the CD and then EAC automatically "Detects Gaps" and then rips and compresses the contents to a fixed folder, then it should save the CUE there as well (I think).
Is there anyone who has experience with this? Are there tools that automate these steps or can I e.g. create a script that does this? Maybe there are other (good!) tools?
Any tip or hint is welcome!
