CD Ripping
« on: July 27, 2020, 04:57:03 pm »
Guys what programme would you recommend for CD ripping? I want to put mp3 music files off my netbook onto CDS. I bought a retro radio CD player ( that looks 1930s) to play old music on but I can't get  my data stick which has mp3s to play on it, but CDs work great on it.

I got it second hand off Ebay and the seller said the mp3 worked for her, so I dunno why it won't work for me.

But anyway CDs are probably better as having a data stick sticking out of the socket ruins the illusion of listening to an old wireless!

I'll have to get an external CD drive because my netbook hasn't got one.

I have Audacity on my netbook for music files, but don't know if it rips CDs as well.

My computer: Asus notebook x102B, running on Peppermint 9.

Hi Melissa.

If you have the MP3 files on your netbook, then you have already ripped them, so simply copying them to a CD (like to a USB stick) might work, unless the CD player expects only CD-formatted files.  Copying them from netbook to a CD will be fine to play them on a PC but not sure about a CD player. 
Other, more experienced, Forum members will be able to provide better advice.

CD players normally expect wav files, not mp3, so you need to convert them before burning the disk. Here's a tutorial:

Thanks guys. I used the wrong term- yes got lots of mp3s. I know how to convert them to wav. I didn't know that CDs should be wav; that's useful to know.

What programme should I use to put the files onto CDs once I get an external CD drive?

As that tutorial says, whatever disk burner you get with your distro should do the job. I have a thing called xfburn which starts by offering 4 options: blank disk, create data disk, create installation disk, and create audio disk. Simple!

Just had a quick look at the tutorial and then saved it to my Pocket. I  now remember using Brasero a few years ago on an earlier Peppermint distro with an old laptop. It worked fine.

I suppose I'd have to find it in the package manager?

Hello Melissa.

You will find Brasero in System-Tools/Software, which is generally easier to use than Package Manager.

Thanks Keith. I will be getting the CD/DVD drive next Friday. I'll let you know how I get on then!
