My PC wouldn't rip it either with EAC, so I used
Audiograbber (which is nice, free, spyware-free software)
You can set it to rip to MP3 or WAV. I used the FreeDB button to find the names of the tracks and then I ripped to WAV and will compress with a lossless format like Monkeys Audio (APE) to preserve the quality. Exactly the same quality as the discs and half the size!
