    EAC - Exact Audio Copy

    with SP2, Windows blocks the vbs, dll, and exe files...pretty much crippling the program. So just unblock all the files.

    Its the best one I've used.
    You may need to get LAME, i use EAC to rip to wav then I encode with razorlame.

    A 2.8 p4 w/ only 194MB or RAM? Seems a bit out of proportion :)

    I just tend to use whatever media player I'm using to also rip CDs. The integrated approach works nicely. iTunes works well too, but since WMP10 is my primary media player now, I just use that.
    CDex should work well too, as Dave already mentioned.

    If you want the most accurate Rips possible, go with EAC (http://www.exactaudiocopy.de/)

    The only program I will ever use for ripping.


    Everything else on here should be more user friendly and faster though, so whatever floats your boat.

    EAC. It is the only way to get error free rips.

    Hehe, yeah. Was just joking. Quite surprised that iTunes would slow that machine down, I run it on an AMD 1GHz/512mb machine with no troubles.
