    i want to rip some audio CD tracks into the lossless .flac format.

    can anyone recommend a good free program to do so?

    i would like it to have a GUI and work on windows XP [​IMG]

    Its a bit daunting at first, but follow the guide, and you shouldn't run into too many problems. Good luck!

    Thanks, it's working good, however with this first CD it can't be found in the database

    winamp recognises the CD and it's tracks...

    That happened to me too, but I think putting in an email address made it work. It doesn't have to be a real email address. Try that and see if it works

    i might try and link to local freedb database.

    edit: erm, ditched that idea, im not downloading a 600megabyte database file lol.

    haha i wonder if this is because it's a chinese CD LOL....

    i think ????? must be the album title then... even still...

    guess i am stuck with manual renaming lol

    Does it still not work for you? That's really strange... I can't help you, because putting in an email worked for me. Sorry

    I just use CDex, it it's pretty simple though it has an annoying habit of dropping your ripped tracks into /music/mp3/ instead of /music/. Other than that, it works great. You do have to put an email in to use cddb, but that takes a whole 5 seconds.
