Hi Gena,

Under the the eac options tab, you'll find an option to configure 
metadata provider, I think from memory this can also be set if you run 
the configuration wizard.

You can manually retrieve  cd information by selecting the  "Get cd 
information" sub ,menu on the database tab.

    With eac speed is sacrificed over accuracy, so rips can take some 
time depending on the condition of the source disc.

Also setting the correct options for your drive is also recommended, 
again this can be done by running the config wizard.

It does seem packed with keyboard shortcuts. I am guessing when I am familiar with it I’ll be very productive with it.
