I had about 700 CDs to rip, and I found the best software to use is Exact Audio Copy (EAC). Instead of paying money to batch rip them, I'd suggest just doing CDs as you surf the web. You don't even notice you're doing them, and in a couple of months time, you're done. This article is old, long, and not very scannable, but it describes some of that you might go through. Good Luck! Thanks, Jon, for the tip and the thorough description of the process in your post on the matter. Sounds like you found a good solution definitely worth sharing with our readers, especially anyone looking to do this ASAP. - Image by Jake Sutton.
