    I have many CD's and am getting an Ipod. What is the best way (or program) to get the music from CD on my computer? I would not like to wait very long for it to copy. Also what is a good program to use to download music?

    I use Limewire to download, it has a good selection and it realtively fast. I am not sure about ripping your CDs, never done it.

    iTunes rips CDs very easily if you are getting an iPod. Goes straight to the correct folder and is quite fast.

    itunes is the easiest way, you can just drag and drop songs from your library to your ipod.

    This is bittorrent

    It's basically another P2P program and its the rage nowadays. Download this program if you're going to use bittorrent:
    Azureus

    and

    Safepeer
    Safepeer basically blocks most IP's that tracks what you're dl'ing and etc.

    Here's a guide to configure Azureus:
    Azureus guide

    If you're using a router, here is a guide to help configure it to Bittorrent to maximize DL speed:
    Router Guide

    And I use Ares to dl random songs really quick.

    Gl, don't get sued! :bigthumb:

    I like allofmp3.com....cheap and you don't have to worry about viruses and corrupted files like you do with p2p programs.

    Don't rip with iTunes, use CDex instead. As for torrent sites, check out Oink.

    Yeah, getting an invite from them is taking forever. An invite from OT would be great, thanks. I'll be willing to make a fair trade also, pm me.

    iTunes MP3 codec is horrible. I did a listening comparison of it next to L.A.M.E. encoding and the iTunes song was all mid-range frequencies and crappy lows and highs.

    Use CDex. Later I'll post a screenshot of the L.A.M.E. settings I use.
