Exclamation automatically copy stuff from cd;s


i want a program/script that automatically copies media such as mp3's or video or images or rip audio cd's in to a specific folder on the hard disk depending on the media.
this is for a freevo box that i'm planning to make, i want a program that automatically does this, and this program should run in the background.
thanks a lot for any suggestions

Hi
A shellscript like this maybe ?

#!/bin/sh
mount /mnt/cdrom || { echo "mount failed" ; exit 1 }
echo "CD mounted"

cp /mnt/cdrom/* /home/starunj/files/

exit 0
