EAC is certainly nicely tweakable, but as the start of this thread shows, sometimes there can be a "tweak too far".
well, that's IF i'm at fault. EAC might have configured itself improperly on the laptop drive I used to make the Beatle rips.

I actually let EAC name the art to the album name, and then post rip I go in with win exp, copy it, rename the copy to Folder.jpg and set both to be hidden but not system files, (using a cool, easy, quick free utility via context menu called attribute changer).

this means if a virus (or WMP or some other badly behaving app) ever hits the Folder.jpgs, there's a uniquely named backup in the folder.

I've noticed that winamp has gone from 1.2.1 to 1.3 for flac. is this coincidence or what?

it looks like there is a 1.3 flac pre-release. has it gone official? I wonder what they changed, either winamp or flac itself?
