NO NOT THAT.
and yes i was shouting.
Then I'm afraid I can't help you.
You dont specify what format you want to use exactly, so if you're flexible give EAC and flac a look.

at the moment i am flexible on the format as the player has not been decided.
But i seem to remember someone mentioning fubar something?
http://whathifi.com/forums/t/140528.aspx was what i was looking for.
FLAC supports gapless playback. What are you usingas your media player?I use Foobar2000 and ripped the files from CD using EAC. Both of theseproducts support gapless playback.I just spent some time listening to The Wall by Pink Floyd. This has anumber of tracks which bleed into each other. Absolutely gapless. Nocracks. Perfect.
Like the EAC. decided to keep the files as WAV files so play back? Foobar2000?
If you wanna keep your files as WAV...ÿ
yes foobar is great.ÿ
I see that EAC also error corrects DRM software!
I've been told Exact Audio Copy is really good for ensuring you get a perfect lossless copy. See exactaudiocopy.de
Haven't tried it myself yet, but it will be the first I do try when I re-rip my music collection to lossless.

I use Winamp for ripping to 128kbit/s AAC - there's no reason at all why you could not use it for a lossless codec such as FLAC or WAV. I find that it has an easily customisable method of naming and organising tracks and uses Gracenote to get track info. I find that Winamp is a good compromise between precision and ease-of-use.Otherwise, if you are keen to get exact rips then go for EAC.The reason why iTunes should be avoided (imho) unless you use iPods is that its ripping can be very inaccurate and can lead to clicks and pops and worse if you are not careful. Ripping CDs can be a difficult process at the best of times due the high number of errors that can occur. iTunes seems not to deal with these very well.
Though I haven't had any issues since I turned error correction on. Though obviously I can't check as there's no 'eac' equivalent.
top tip have more that one PC and Disc reader. what will not real on one may well read on the other
I'll add to that most drives which come installed on macs (such as Matshita) are rubbish. Adding a cheap external drive will reward you with a faster more reliable experience.
Before you settle on EAC I recommend you try dbPoweramp. The trial version, 21 days of full functionality, may win you over. Not only is it easier to set up than EAC, it offers superior tagging features, out of the box integrated album art, and out of the box integration with Accurate Rip. It also makes a better job of adding codec support and provides a clearer interface to the command line options for those codecs. It also provides a well rounded set of plugins to enable additional DSP functions like replaygain.ÿ
As for secure ripping functions it is at least the equal of EAC.ÿ
I have used both extensively and would not go back to EAC.
