I'm looking to burn some CD's so save the original's integrity (wear n tear). I've tried burning high quality MP3's but when I play them into my car's CD player, there is noticable difference in tones and overall quality of the music in comparison to the original music CD.
Now has anyone burned a FLAC album as an audio CD? Tomorrow I'll find out if ripping/burning a CD image (cue/bin format for those interested) will work well.
Anyways, please share some thoughts and suggestions. I really want to use copies of CD's rather than the originals since I'm so paranoid on scratches and things.

Burning a CD should be a lossless conversion unless the software is doing something weird with the files. Have you tried playing the CD on your pc to compare with the mp3? --- Corsair 500r ~ P8Z68-V Pro ~ i5 2500k ~ Hyper 212+ ~ Corsair 2x4gb ~ TX750w v2 ~ 560 Ti ~ F3 1TB ~ Crucial M4 128GB ~ Xonar DG ~ Tt Meka G1 ~ Asus PA248Q
What I do personally, is rip the CD as cue/bin, mount it, and then rip the mounted copy to FLAC. For whatever reason, it saves 50~ minutes and doesn't occasionally fail a song's rip. I use Foobar2000 to rip the files with the FLAC encoder from here. http://www.rarewares.org/lossless.php#flac-bundle-x64 --- I think I'm the only person on gamefaqs with a daughterboard - ToastyOne New with a moderation history more plentiful than karma. - Fossil (Moderator)

Rip them properly (use EAC and follow the setup guide on blowfish.be posted earlier), and don't use a lossy codec. That's all there is to it. If you're just going to play them in your car's CD player, I doubt that it supports FLAC, so really, all you need to do is do a 1:1 copy of your original... --- -What is best in life? -To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
The problem is you're ripping the CDs in MP3 format. Even the best MP3s are poor compared to a CD. Converting them back to WAV or another CD quality format doesn't restore the data lost by ripping to MP3. --- Fan of metal? Don't mind covers?
