I used Lame w/ Exact Audio Copy last year without problems with Windows 2000. I had to reinstall Windows 2000 recently on my desktop. Last night, I installed the EAC v .09beta3 and win32Lame 1.7 on my pc. Problem is, when I try to encode from .wav to .mp3, it takes a long time for it to finish, it takes around 2 hours per song. I had no problem in the past, it worked great before. I am using the "--remix" default options, by dragging and dropping the .wav files and hitting encode on win32lame. I also tried to use the command line option compression in EAC for lame, again using the "--remix" option, without any improvement, it also takes 2 hours to encode per song. Please help!
