Copying Music Cd's to Usb Stick

In win7 I use Realistic software to copy purchased cd's and load to a Usb stick to play on player I have. The software will convert files to Mp3.

Can anyone advise if there is a player/copyier in Linux Mint 1l, it should be capable to format a stick and set it up for music albums. I have googled this all over the Internet with no results.

Thanks. EdWh

Hi Sagirlfahmid3.

Copying a whole CD ISO image to a USB to play music is VERY VERY inefficient and wasteful. Rippers are what you need; they can convert the music to mp3, then reburn it to another CD as a music CD image.

Hi Sagirlfahmid3.

Thanks again for info. It turns out the cd's are already Mp3. What I need is a Linux Real Player to copy tracks to play list and copy to Usb stick. I can get as many as 12 or more cd's worth of music on a Usb stick and do not have to keep changing disc's. Win7 real player works well for this and I already have the players. So to me this is not wastefiul and I also have purchased my cd's and it is just a convenience thing. Just trying to find a decent program in Linux to replace Win7. Thanks again. EdWh

I'm a bit too simpleminded to understand the problem. I believe that I can mount a USB stick, open a window, mount the CD, open a window, and drag-and-drop from the CD to the USB. Where does that fail for you?

Hi Mick3,

Yes this works BUT I have found that there are extra movie clip files embedded in the Audio tracks and after coping the stick will not play. Using Real Player in Win7 to rip and copy to Usb stick land change to Mp3 the stick will play. I like you am not versed enough to understand all this and I really do not want to. I just want copy the Audio and play without sweat. Not easy in Linux. Ed.

Install Sound-Juicer or RipperX or Asunder (or all 3 and choose the one you prefer)
Set your output from the above program to your USB Stick and hit Rip.

Done.

There are a whole stack of music/media players available for Linux, audio or video or both..
http://lindesk.com/2008/03/top-10-linux-mp3-players/
--I usually use Songbird, for example..
  • Unfortunately like some(many) successful Linux or OSS projects, once good success arrives, they quite often abandon Linux for greener pastures ($cash, that is..)
    --and sometimes don't even consider being cross platform: perhaps that is a knock-on effect of their new market?, who knows for sure..
CD rippers simply provide methods of converting and ordering playlist or tracks in mp3 or other formats..
Linux often includes a place in your /home directory for video or audio files (music is the name in a Gnome and some other window managed desktops (the normal GUI interface..))

Hi Seventh Reign
Dr Hu. Thanks for all the help. Will try the rippers you suggested and see what happens.
