I can't seem to find a good method to rip my CDs into MP3 using the latest LAME. I'd rather not mess with Darwine or anything, actually I wouldn't mind but its been giving me problems lately. Darwine aside, how could i rip my CDs with LAME 3.98? I tried using bootcamp to use EAC under Win XP but it fails to see the CD info like album name, artist, track names, etc. I've used a program by the name of iTunes-LAME (http://www.blacktree.com/projects/itunes-lame.html) and it works wonderfully. iTunes sees all the CD info and iTunes-LAME creates mp3s, but the only problem is that it uses LAME 3.97. If it makes any difference, the CD im trying to rip is a Japanese CD and there was no internet connection on my XP setup. Does iTunes grab the cd info from the CD or from the internet? Ill disable my internet and try a different CD and report back but in the meantime, any encoding suggestions are appreciated.
