    After a HDD reformat Im getting ready to rerip all my cds to MP3's for my iPod. Decided to use EAC to rip and lame to compress. Problem is.... album and artist names show up as unknown in foobar (Decided to use foobar for a pc player). before I get too far into this time consuming project, does anyone know the correct settings/file naming conventions to make this work properly? i.e. lame settings for filenaming (folders, id3v1 or 2) and the same for foobar. Thanks.

    Never used foobar, I'm a loyal winamp fan, but my guess would be that you have your EAC options set up to either encode the mp3s with IDv1 or IDv2, not both. And chances are foobar only reads one. Somewhere in the EAC settings are options where you can select to use both v1 and v2 tags. That should fix the problem.
