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.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
