    I looking for help installing lame. I've dl several times, various sources - official and verified. Either I keeping missing file or I can't read. Readme refers to install instuctions but can't find em. Running WinME.

    When I try to open the prog I briefly see a new window and then it closes, all in about 2-3 sec's.

    I'm going nutty trying to get this working. Any lame comments welcome. lol

    Cheers, omc

    Hi oldmancan:

    LAME isn't really a standalone program. It works if you use it like this:

    bring up a DOS window (Start, run, cmd)
    Go to the directory where you have LAME
    Type LAME --alt-preset standard file.wav file.mp3
    (where file is, replace it with your real filename)

    Sorry, my instructions aren't very good
    However, http://www.mp3dev.org/mp3/doc/html/examples.html
    is an excellent resource on LAME command lines.

    Or, take a look at this, also excellent:

    dMC Music Converter is a very good freeware music converter which uses Lame.

    And the lamest is...calctext98, for telling me to read better. The answer I was looking for was in the thread I was trying to follow (making high quality mp3's). What I had missed was to put lame into the EAC folder. Then in EAC menu>compression options>external compression>lame.exe.

    Easy to follow instructions... I just shouldn't try when too tired.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Cheers, omc
