CD Ripping Software

  morddwyd 12 Oct 11

Trying to rip a few CDs for the car but the software I have tried seems to be using a database far removed from what is actually on the CDs!

Any recommend a decent programme with a reliable database?

Don't mind paying for a half way decent programme.

Even if you don't have an iPod, iTunes is free and does what you want. I believe (free) Audacity is ok; I also have a paid for version of Roxio but it has so many other features such as a photography section I don't use that I do not think I would buy it. However in combination with iTunes it quickly identifies most music (eg when I use Audials8 to record FM radio MP3's) it provides artist, artwork etc. Have a look at iTunes, Audacity and Roxio Creator via Google! I assume you want to assemble compilation CD's? Burn in audio format unless your car can recognise MP3.

Audacity wont "rip" audio from a cd it is audio editing/recording software.If it's just to rip audio from a cd to create another cd windows media will do this just fine also winamp too!

Same here WMP

Thanks for the responses.

Tried WMP first but it simply defaults to the inaccurate software I've already mentioned.

If I uninstall the software there is no "Rip" option with WMP.

What player do you have in the car? In WMP go to tools- options- rip music then select WAV (lossless) or if your car player plays MP3 use that.
