    Question Question about ripping music CD's in Ubuntu 8.10

    Took me a while to figure out how to rip a music CD in 8.10. Now I see that you use Rhythmbox. My question is, how do you get Rhythmbox to auto rip music CD's when you insert them into the disc drive. Also does the Rhythmbox ripping do any error correction? I would not mind any suggestions for ripping music CD's. The main thing is that I have hundreds of CD's and some of them are scratched.

    I don't believe rhymthbox can auto do anything.
    Rubyripper does use cdparnanoia for error cor. and can be setup to auto run.

    Basically you'd just insert the cd and it would rip, or rip and encode in the background. (insert cd and walk away if desired

    Or if you wanted to watch, with a slight change it will autostart and you'd just have to click the rip button.

    I don't use 8.10 but I know from testing it that the very latest version will run on 8.10 though the gui is a little messed up.

    I would have to test it first to see if things worked out. (it works perfectly on 8.04. (hint

    What are you ripping to?

    If it's just to .wav I've noticed that rythmbox in 8.10 has a problem with .wav's not ripped with gstreamer apps or by itself.

    To test on your box take a .wav ripped elsewhere or browse an audio cd, drag a track to your desktop and see if rhythmbox can play it after it's been copied.

    RR will leave a log in each albums folder so even if you let it work in the background you can always review
