I've used EAC and LAME to rip and encode my CD collection to VBR mp3s. Some of the CDs were well worn and so it took EAC a while to rip them, but they all worked out. I just recenly bought a 2-cd soundtrack to an anime series (Boogiepop Phantom) and tried to rip it. I thought I was done until I listened to the songs. It seems every song was cut short -- only the first couple minutes of each song was ripped. I haven't changed my config since doing the rest of my CDs and can't figure out why this is happening. I even did a hard reboot.
