. . . Better yet get a big external drive and get your PC interfaced to your TV/Stereo then digitize everything
Recommendations on software and settings for Ripping?
I am slowing making my way through my moving my CDs to Digital. Every time I pull out a stack I ponder over what software to use to rip and what settings. The last batch was with Windows Media Player at 256kps. That is a jump from most of the previous batch using a much lower setting of either 128kps or 192. As my MP3 players get larger I'm thinking better quality vs size. Just got an iPhone so iTunes is on the PC for the first time. Does it create a better quality file?
Everything so far is MP3 format so don't think I want to change from that now.
rip them all to a hard drive then throw away the media along with the jewel cases
Not expecting the license police to stop by BUT even after the CD is ripped don't I want to keep the original media since that is my legal right to have the ripped copy?
