Re: cd ripping

How are you currently ripping them? I use CDEx as it lets you not only rip songs off cds, but convert them to other bit rates and such as well.

Re: cd ripping

This is what I use. I like it as it will pull the cd info from CDDB for you so all you have to do is insert the CD and rip the files. It also lets you convert mp3s to wav so you can fix corrupt mp3s, and then convert them back to mp3. This is also the way to make them a different bitrate. I do that to make the bitrate smaller as I store all my MP3s as 192...I will convert them to 96 for car audio so I can get even more onto a cd.

Plus, it is free. :beer:

Re: cd ripping

i use roxio easy cd creator 6 for going from CD .WAV formats to MP3.

you can also download Sonique, they have a .wav-.mp3 converter. i think winamp does also, though not quite sure.

and smurfie, hows those 96 sound? i find anything lower than 192bps and when S's are pronounced or theres alot of high sounds(snares n ****) the speakers crackle/hiss at those points. and my system is built to handle highs as well as low's and everything in between with no problem. i find its a fault in the mp3, as if i find the same song on a Real CD it sounds perfect, but the same song in a mp3 lower than 192 and it breaks up.

Re: cd ripping

sounds like you're just dragging and dropping each track onto your desktop. if that's the case, then all you're doing is actually making shortcuts to the song location on the cd; when you take the cd out and try to click the shortcut, the cd location is no longer there... so, what you need to do is get an actual cd ripping program. i recommend musicmatch, but it is a memory hog, so you might do better with something else

Re: cd ripping

In using several CD ripping programs I will have to say Nero Burning 6.1 or 6.6 is the absolute best.

I haven't had any issue with the 96's. I usually burn about 200 songs to a disc and bring it to work to listen to through headphones. I will also use those discs in an MP3 radio at home when working around the house/on the car. I haven't really had issue with it....maybe I am just deaf tho. lol

Re: cd ripping

i use CDEX as well... its a great program. I always rip songs at 300+ kbps though for the best quality... it takes up more room, but i have lots of space.
