I haven't got time to start playing with loads of free downloads i've tried a couple but they aren't really free they're limited trials, can anyone recommend a good (or poor as long as it works ) CD - MP3 ripper that will also add ID3 tags (no Real Player please)?
I'll give AudioGrabber a look cheers.
I use sound juicer normally but i've just scrubbed my Linux box and haven't rebuilt it yet, so now you see why i've asked the question
Am i missing a setting here i can't seem to get it to rip at a decent speed, it just want's to rip while playing at 1x.
I use Exact Audio Copy with lame (both free). Works great, names files etc, and then I use a tag program to add the id3s en masse. Cant remember the name of the latter though
I did in the ast work out which box to tick to make it work, but can't remember how. I'll look at it again tomorrow!
I think you'll find it under Settings CD-ROM access method. Select ASPI rather than analogue.

Can Windows Media Player rip music?
Yes i thought that might be the case but i couldn't alter that setting, then i realised that i wasn't running the program as administrator
FN-Greatermanchester: WMP only rips to WMA files unless you faff around with extra codecs.
ah right, i never use media player
Hydrogenaudio.org has all the info you'll ever need on this topic: wiki entry for EAC and LAME config, wiki entry for EAC cdrom drive setup

CDex | Open Source Digital Audio CD Extractor with more than 32,000,000 downloads
opensource and can convert between wav, mp3 etc as well as rip directly to mp3 or wav and is free as per the open source part.
Works well for me
Audio grabber is what I used to use and is pretty good as well.
EAC gets my vote as well, use LAME and set it to VBR bite rate.
EAC here, although I don't use secure copy as I prefer test and copy comparing the CRCs for each read. Then it gets converted to flac.
