Well 40% isn't that much these days. I have 700 CDs and a 1TB drive can handle all of them without compression, with room to spare. Besides my Korg MR-1000 doesn't play flac files. And there's a few tracks on some CDs that don't encode / decode well with flac. Probably 1 track in 3 cds of only certain artists. But enough to be a deal breaker.

As I look at HD camcorders and AVCHD. 30% savings in space, and need a 3GHz cpu (dual or quad core) just to play them in realtime. Not to imply played correctly.

I recommand mp3c.

As you use Slackware, you'll find a slackbuild for it at slackbuilds.org.

According to the readme:

MP3c converts audio-cds to mp3/ogg-format. It runs either in a
curses-based interactive mode or in batch mode.

I use it interactive mode: all I have to do is insert a CD in the slot, open a terminal, type mp3c, <enter>, and when it's ready hit F3: it will rip, encode and make a playlist, using a CDDB connection to retrieve the metadata. Simple, isn't it ?

I guess you'll be better of using it in batch mode to automatize the process, but I didn't try.

It looks pretty cool, but it gives me this error when it tries to rip:
Code:

I don't know what's going on there but it's well over my head. Thanks for the suggestion anyway!

This message:
"cdda2wav: Operation not permitted. cannot set posix realtime scheduling policy"
doesn't hurt: I always get it and it doesn't prevent from ripping the track.
About this one:
"cdda2wav: Operation not permitted. Cannot send SCSI cmd via ioctl"
which seem to be fatal, check if the user under which you use the mp3c command belong to the "audio" and "cdrom" groups. If not, include it in these groups and try again.

Does that help ?

Nope. It still comes up with the same error message.

Hmm, it seems to work if I run mp3c as root (thanks to some advice I got from another person) - hopefully there won't be any problems from here on in.

I've been using abcde for years, it's a front end for cdparanoia, lame, bladeenc, id3tag and can be configured easily. Run it from the command line, errors show up right there in front of you so you know what's going on all the time. It will grab meta data off the net and will allow you to edit the titles however you want before it starts ripping. Complete control of every process with one config file. Once you get it set up it is very reliable.

Now that the thread's bumped, I might as well reply again. I upgraded from Slackware 12.0 to 12.1 and my cd permission problems with mp3c mysteriously disappeared (probably due to a newer kernel). Thanks again, Dider Spaier!

You're welcome - better thank the packager and the upstream developer though ;-)

BTW Slackware 12.2 is about to be released.

Side note: to get the best sound quality, don't forget to include "lame --preset insane" option in MP3/Oggencoder non-fly and on-fly entries after hitting F2

But I guess you already knew that...

Take care.
