I now have what must be a good interface working between EAC and freedb since I can retrieve album/track info under Database->Get CD Information From->Remote freedb. What is not happening is this info ever going anywhere. I thought the idea was that somehow this data is embedded in the header portion of the file being ripped to my hard drive. I then thought it would show up in the right half of slimserver identifying by name each track that is queued up to play.

Am I off here or do I have the right idea? What am I failing to do to get this 'tag' info to actually be of any use to me?

Compressing with 'flac' has not come into the picture,although I have done it. It doesn't work when compressing either.
