Postby zendogmu on Sun Feb 08, 2009 8:06 pm

If I have some music CD's and I want to either save them to my HD as is in pure audio format or convert as they play to mpg or ogg or whatever works for linux, what do i use, how do I do it, and any other info... I want to be able to platback from the hard drive.

thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you are using the GNOME version of Mint, you already have Rhythmbox installed. Rhythmbox will rip and encode a CD. I think it rips the entire CD at one time. I currently use Sound Juicer, which is available via Synaptic. I can pick and choose which tracks I want to rip and encode. I have used both Rhythmbox and Sound Juicer. Those are the GNOME options I have used and can suggest. In KDE, I have used K3b to accomplish the same tasks. Maybe that will point you in the right direction. Have fun.

For CD quality what format do you use. aac or the default oga whatever that is. There is also another one too. Can these players play aac format? What do you recommend?

Hello zendogmu,

You should rip to FLAC (free lossless audio codec).
Sound Juicer is very easy to use when you want to rip your music CDs :D
