    Hi,
    Can anyone recommend a VERY easy to use free cd to mp3 convertor program with organiser capabilities as i want to transfer all my cd collection to my pc harddrive then eventually to a modded xbox(when i get one but one step at a time!). Am doing it all manually at the moment. Have tried downloads like mediamonkey but looks a bit complicated for me. I want it to transfer the id tags and album info as well so i know what each track is.
    Thanks
    Gav

    Personally i use Musicmatch Jukebox, its simple to use, organises your songs, has a range of ripping options and it can search for your cd's id tags through the internet....:smashin:

    Just use Windows Media 10, it should be on your PC, go to options and set rips to MP3.

    I've been playing around with ripping again recently. Windows Media Player works OK, but the database (for looking up and creating tags) is a bit limited, sometimes getting it totally wrong.
    MusicMatch works better, but you have to hunt around for the free version, and it nags you to upgrade to the paid-for version.
    CDex works well, but is a bit "techie".

    I'm sticking with the free MusicMatch, and using mp3tag to correct the odd tagging problem.

    If you're going to connect your PC to a stereo (rather than using PC speakers), it's worth ripping at 320k, rather than the default 128k.

    I use the Freeware program CD'n'Go it's a great ripper and mp3 encoder.

    Has control of several different mp3 encoders.

    Good tagging using the free database 'freedb'.

    Can also edit tags on mp3 files on the hard drive.

    Another good freeware app is CDex, I prefer CD'n'GO though.
