Ripping copy-protected CDs...


SOLVED !!

So , I want to "export" my CD-collection to a harddrive in order to create a "jukebox" for parties and such to save me the hassle of putting new CDs in the player every once in a while.
We're talking .wav here , since I despise MP3.
Now I encountered several CDs with a copy-protection and ripprX wouldn't let me do it.

All a search on this board turned up with was some trick with xmms to have the sound put out as a file , but that thread didn't specify the needed plugin.
Google wasn't overly helpfull either , btw...

In short : How to overcome this copy-protection for my perfectly legal purpose?

Bloody companies brand every customer as a "pirate" out of hand ....

Have you tried Grip with just the "rip" option and not encode? If the CD can be played on any normal CD palyer, then it should be rippable.

Also, you should take a look at flac. It's a Free Lossless Audio Codec - you don't lose anything, as opposed to MP3.

First you do not need xmms to make a copy of the wav file or to convert the wav file. You can simply copy the contents by using something like CDfs;

http://www.elis.rug.ac.be/~ronsse/cdfs/

The conversion is done by using something like bladeenc or lame;

bladeenc song.wav song.mp3

lame song.wav song.mp3

See the man pages for both for the details and options.

Or you can try using k3b; http://www.k3b.org/

Finally xmms can do what you want just set the Output Plugin preference to the Disk Writer Plugin.

Worst-case-scenereo

If you can't read the cd digitally; you can make an analog-to-digital recording by plugging a cd-player into the line-in on your computer and using a recorder like Audacity.

This is obviously a last resort, but it works.

...or
In the outplugin in XMMS, you put it on the "diskwriter" plugin
It should have come with XMMS.

Instead of playing the cd, it'll just copy the data of the song to a file.

Oki-Dokey ; CDParanoia manages to rip those CDs quite nicely.
Now I have another question ;
Since the songs , I ripped with CDParanoia , are saved to the directory as track01.cdda.wav etc. is there a program floating around the web , that'll let me query the cddb-database from the 'net ,so these songs will be saved under their actual name?
As it is now , it looks like I'll have to rename them by hand.
Kinda tedious with over 200 CDs.... (not to mention the LPs , I plan to digitise....)

Btw.- The diskwriter-plugin in xmms didn't work from the CD , but works with already ripped tracks from a file. Do I have some settings wrong?

Grip, which was named by scuzzman. Connect to the 'net, then start ripping cds. The artist, disk and song titles, all come up automagically.

200 CDs plus some LPs in WAV? How many terabytes of disk space did you say you had?!

Not all of the songs on them will make it , ofcourse.
In fact : Most won't , but it's easier to sift through them by their name.

Oh : And as far as Grip is concerned ; It states , it needs Gnome being installed , so.....
No-Go.
