Whats a good program to rip song off cds.. Windows Media Player just won't cut it anymore..
i use and like winamp
rip music from a CD : Audiograbber
rip music from a CD : CDex
rip music from a CD : EAC = Exact Audio Copy
I was seriously laughing when I read that.
Program not problem
EAC -> Lame MP3 or FLAC = the only method worth doing...
MP3 is OGG all the way.
Number of stand alone MP3 players ~ 11ty billion
Number of stand alone OGG players ~ 8
ogg is like biking to work every day. It might make you feel good, but in reality it's not practical.
I don't know what the fuck you guys are talking about. Every media player I have on my computer supports OGG. My MP3 player (an iRiver) supports OGG, and you can even make an iPod support OGG by running Rockbox on it. My entire music collection is in OGG format and I've never had a problem with that.
Good job. So can I bring my iPod over and put songs on it....
I don't think you know what the fuck a stand alone device is. I own 4 devices that play MP3's, 0 support OGG. Just because YOUR devices supports it does not mean every device does. The vast majority do not (unless, of course, you convert the OGG to .....MP3!) For every device that support OGG there are probably what, 100 that don't?
Sounds like you are the clueless one here fanboy.
I didn't say every device did, I said that many do and the most popular one (iPod) can.
If your devices only support MP3, then by all means keep using MP3. I was just pointing out that MP3 is the suck and, given the choice, OGG is a better format.
BetaMAX was a better format too. Being a better format doesn't mean it's the right format. For portability MP3 is still way more useful than OGG. Most players don't support OGG, especially when you get to things like in car CD Decks or home DVD players that support digital media.
cdex with lame is all you need.
