    Trying using the search function. This has been asked so many times over the last few weeks.

    If you want simple use CDex

    If you want decent rips use EAC with LAME mp3 codec.

    CDex with LAME works well.

    EAC has never worked for me. ever.

    EAC + LAME.

    I don't know of any ripper other than EAC which does error correction. Yes, it is involved, but well worth it.

    There is a simple mode in EAC as well, that take away all the scary options and makes it a nice easy to use programme.

    the scary options aren't the problem. only recording silence is the problem.

    i read the manual, and for good measure changed EVERY option one by one to see if i could spark a reaction. it b0rked on the "wrong" settings and was silent on the "right" settings.

    eac didn't like my cd-drive at all - where cdex didn't have a problem - go figure...

    <edit>
    clarify - eac all tunes were silent - audiograbber was fine, cdex was silent on the first 2 songs of each cd (especially annoying when you're spot checking random tracks!) and that was running in native mode rather than aspi.
    exactly the same config on another machine (with slower drives) worked perfectly with eac and cdex

    You may have needed to update your ASPI layer for EAC to have seen your drive properly.
