So… I’m trying to rip my CD collection onto my computer and I find out that I don’t have the correct codecs for Ubuntu. I’m off to get the codecs. Woo. Not.
I understand why they don’t include the codecs, but it’s irritating when you realize you don’t have them. I’ve decided to get a new ripper too. Something called GooBox. When this is done, I’ll end up having Sound Juicer, Grip and GooBox. Gotta love it.
I had problems with Sound Juicer. The program was giving my music this awful popping noise. I know my CDs aren’t all in perfect condition, but come on. I don’t like pops and snaps and whatnot in my music.
The Ubuntu Hacks authors recommended Grip. I tried it but got an error. Oh well… I didn’t have the codecs I needed, so I’m getting GooBox, like I mentioned earlier.
I’m doing ogg formats for my CDs. I want to get all my music on my computer so I can listen to it when I’m on the web or working on my paper, or just playing a game. I also want it accessible on my Windows partition too, so I can listen when I’m in there too. After it rips, I’ll just plop it all on the FAT drive so I can get to it in both OSes.
