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)?

AudioGrabber Does what it says on the tin.

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

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

Ahh yes, about that... If you can work out what it is, please let me know! I have it installed on 4/5 machines that all work fine; my daughters... Does exactly what you describe.

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.

I agree entirely with this setup for the best quality ripping if you use it in secure mode. Modern drives should be able to rip securely at about 6X, which takes less time than fixing all the errors in a freedb tracklisting. No need for a 3rd party app to add the tags though - EAC will do that for you during ripping if you set it up.

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.

CDBurnerXP can rip (aswell as a bunch of other stuff) - and it's free!

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.
