EAC help
« on: February 11, 2003, 06:40:55 PM »
What's up guys,
I'm kind of new to the computer tranfer stuff and was wondering if I was able to use EAC with Mac OSX. The only type of instructions I've seen so far were for Windows. Do macs use something else?

Thanks,
Kevin

Funny, this just came up on the Oade board too... but there's an OS X port of X-CD-Roast that has cdparanoia built in, if you're feeling adventurous:

You've gotta install a ton of other stuff, including X11 and other libraries  :o but a friend got it to work (I haven't tried it yet) and is tweaking around with the cdparanoia part of it. Kind of a bass-ackwards way of doing it, but cdparanoia is light years better than iTunes...

ps. Thanks to Scott Brown for the link...

i looked at that program too.  looked perty clunky to me.  not very user friendly.  besides, as far as i know, i-tunes and disc copy are bit perfect, so i don't think i will bother trying anything else at this time.  this comes up so seldom nowadays where you havta rip a CD anyway.   ::)

PS: Scott, is there any real difference in itunes and Toast w/ Jam?
      Is itunes reliable or would I benifit more from Toast's features?  ;)
