I guess the other thread got deleted as i could'nt find it.

I had a question: Is it better to rip your cd's in flac if you want to burn the same on blank or is ripping in wav a better option?
TIA
Cheers

You don't need to convert FLAC to mp3 to burn an audio cd. That way you will lose quality. Most of the cd burning softwares like Nero have plugins that allow you to directly burn audio cd from .flac.

I use EAC to back up my original CD's to wav and then burn to CD-R. Another option is to create an image using Nero and then burn the image to a CD-R.

Depends on a lot of things. Why are you ripping it in the first place? If you just want to make a copy, just select to "Copy Entire Disc" in your cd burning software.

If you need a rip to play on your PC or some other portable player, rip to the format that all/ most of the devices you intend to play it on, will support.

Generally speaking, I would prefer to rip to flac just in order to reduce file size.
