Does anyone know of a good CD Ripper?

    I want to rip some CDs >> MP3s for my SlimX. I did this in August on my old comp (in NY) using Music Match. Tomorrow I'm getting a CD burner again, but MM won't work on this PCrap.

    What's a good FREE (and downloadable) CD Ripper with VBR?

    Yup, that's the best method.

    cdex... it's easier then eac and uses lame.

    That wasn't so complicated. It's running at 1.01x though, 1.7x peak.

    Damn, I need a new computer.

    CDEX is probably 'easier' (not that EAC is complicated but.. I
    guess you could say that). But believe me EAC + LAME is by far
    the best combo to use to rip audio files from CD. And I'm talking
    from experience having myself quite a bit of music on MP3 format.
    All being legal, obviously... *cough*.

    Just follow this link and voilà [​IMG] Pretty easy IMO.

    Download EAC here
    Download LAME here

    Have fun [​IMG]

    EAC is the only program where, when set up corectly, you can be assured of a 100% accurate rip if it says it is 100% accurate. CDex does not do this even in full paranoia mode.

    However, in 99% or more cases CDex will provide the accurate results, but its not 100% guaranteed. So if you find EAC to complicated go for CDex. Also for linux users EAC is not an option.

    But with the directions provided in the above link (the Chrismyden one) setting up EAC its very easy.

    It's too bad that EAC doesn't work for Windows 10.

    Yes it does. I have ripped 100s with eac and win 10

    Is there a good solution for Mac users? To date, I have been using iTunes with decent results (with error correction turned on, of course).

    XLD has been my goto for awhile now
