• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

CD ripping



Had a few cds knocking about and thought about converting them to play in my android phone. Worked beautifully without converting to mp3. Fedoras rhythmbox copies music to its library in .ogg format and this compatible with android devices. Awesome!

Handy script for ripping - burnCDDA - found in trying a Slackware-based distro and visiting their forum.

apt-get install xcfa

in Debian works very well as a ripper, too.
Came in to recommend rhythmbox's built-in ripper only to find that the TC had done it himself. Nice work!

I'm certain that there're better rippers available, especially for audiophiles, but I've always found rhythmbox's ripper to work well enough for my needs.
