which is the best bit of (free) software to convert CDs to mp3 with all the tracklistings/tags, etc?
a bit gay. but easy. makes sure you go into settings and tell it not to convert to AAC though
But i've heard itunes mp3 converter isnt very good. Still, i;d just use that and high bit rate.
what the AAC thing is about!?
you can download the iTunes-LAME Encoder. Just google for it.
if you dont care about quality.
Exact Audio Copy (EAC) with lame mp3 codec if you want good quality, or go for FLAC if you want perfect quality.
uses lame and is free! check www.download.com or something.
cdex rings a bell...
what bitrate does itunes rip to?
very stinky Apple bitrate. Avoid.
(up to 320kbps or apple lossless)
you can set it so it ISNT in apple format and at 320kbps or VBR, whatever. you just have to go into the settings.
You should have it already installed.
