how to convert cd to mp3


Hello,

looking for a soft to convert audio CDs to mp3 files. Would like smth that would perfom search on the WEB to create kind of directories with the names of CDs titles and names of mp3 files with the titles of CDs tracks.

Under Win, I use SoundBlaster's JukeBox soft that does that - I insert a CD, it prints out its title and tracks titles.

Currently, I'm under RedHat9.0.

Thank you in advance.

Well I've never used it (not a KDE person) but KAudioCreator looks like it might fit the bill:

Grip will work fine under kde...

Another option: ripperX

Also don't forget to try some cli apps. They are generally much faster, and most are CDDB enabled ie: you can get the track names etc.

Have a look at 'abcde' or 'cdmp3'

Typing 'cd ripper' into www.google.com/linux should provide myriad choices.

In fact, grip is installed under RH and can be easily used under KDE. And it does exactly what I need...

Great, thanks a lot.

What is nuf ?

Grip works fine. I converted some CD to mp3. It created me a complex tree structure, the root directory is 'mp3', then I have the name of the person as directory, in which I have the title of the album as directory containing mp3 files. The files are of course name after track titles. But I imagine that I can change the output format from the config options.

After converting other CDs, I will need to burn all of them on CD (Several dozens of 'normal' CDs on only one mp3 CD...). Do I burn all this tree structure ? Or if I give only files, will it create conflicts for different tracks sharing the same title.

Linux is really rulez forever.

You could always tell Grip to use the naming scheme of artist_album_songtitle.mp3 instead of artist / album / song_title.mp3.

Also, you must not be a comic book guy... "'nuf said" was a catch phrase of Stan Lee, one of Comic-doms greats.
