Re: best free software for audio CD disc to disc copy

EAC is not for on the fly copies, and for what I know it is not a good idea to do Audio CD copies in this way.

If you want to use the "on the fly" method, the better option maybe is CloneCD, but it is not free

Exact Audio Copy can be found here

tried it but it would not burn a cd on the fly, 3 coasters in a row before I gave up.

Yes it will. I've done so on many occasions. What burner/s and other reading device/s do you have and what settings did you use?

CopyToDVD is very user friendly. No more time wasted on fussy, complicated interfaces. Create Audio CDs from MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, MusePack and APE file formats.

Re: best free software for audio CD disc to disc copy

^ The OP wants to copy on-the-fly (i.e. disc to disc) not by re-authoring from a compressed format.

Re: best free software for audio CD disc to disc copy

On the fly is not a "quality" method, but is supported by many "ordinary" burning programs.

Using EAC, you would copy the source CD to a WAV/CUE image, with robust error detection, retry and sample listening of any doubtful areas, then burn from the image. using a calibration disk, you can also ensure that there is no offset at all, and depending on the drives over-read capabilties, no sample losses due to offset correction.

There are quick ways, and there are good ways, but no quick good ways, though if the source disk is in perfect condition, on the fly can just about work.

A user on this forum recommended CDBurnerXP (http://cdburnerxp.se/) to me and it's one of the best and easiest free apps I've used.
