Look up CNET or SnapFiles to get possible programs. Many are free.

I want to find a legitimate site, don't want to get into trouble getting virus or something.

Does it have to be online? Itunes has that capability.

It doesn't have to be on line, I just hope I can get it for free.

Thanks

I just found out on youtube, I can just rip the CD ( even to particular song) into MP3 using MediaPlay on the computer. Seems like it's working. I have to load onto MP3 player to verify.

Do I just put into memory stick and play it in the car? How do I group into different folders? Just like any computer files and the car player can sort it out?

Sorry my question is so ignorant, I don't listen to music! I only listen to news radio, never even try to play anything beyond CD, now the new cars don't even come with a CD player, have have a USB port! Never even look into this until my big boss ( wife of cause) ask my help.

Thanks

It has always worked for me.
PS. Make sure that it can look up the correct album song information from the internet.

That depends on how smart your car stereo is. It is worth trying in different folders so that you can control what plays and so that combining duplicate song names from different folders will not cause a problem.

CNET and SnapFiles screen out bad stuff.

http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/ is the best extractor available and it is Windows only. You could use cdparanoia on Linux. It is important because Audio CD format does not have any error correction codes unlike other data storage mechanism. You could use LAME encoder to encode raw PCM to MP3 format in any operating system.

dBpoweramp is the best utility I have encountered.

ExactAudioCopy is arguably the best out there, it's free and has the most features. It re-reads the track multiple times and can rip to proper lossless formats, not just mp3. It's very fussy though so if your CD's are scratched you may have issues as it tries to create true copies and does not "make up data" if it can't read it like most normal rippers do.
