During the install  you should be selecting the expert/advanced settings when installing. 

Failing to do this will leave a number of advanced options hidden that you'll need to access in a bit

After installing EAC Click on the shortcut and this is the first step

Move on to EAC>Drive Options (or press F10).

In the first tab, Extraction Method, click the button that says "Detect Read Features...

" and let EAC check out your drive. This may take a few moments.

When it's done, click Apply and then OK to close that box.

when detecting the read features under Secure Mode


You need to make a couple of changes  This may seem excessive

but it's a one-time process which you'll never have to repeat
