    seems Windows has given up on their Media Player/ripper database linker or whatever, I just get errors now. What's a good simple ripper for track/album names and art?

    TIA

    ^^ Is what MusicBee using by default (mp3 320k Joint Stereo) as well as many other formats options inc Flac both to Rip CD's and convert digital Media.

    dBpoweramp for ripping CDs, MP3tag for amending the tags, etc. and VLC for playing MP3s

    edited: Oh, yeah, and I use .FLAC rather than .MP3 :)

    thanks for the replies, i'll give the Bee a try tonight. seems to have a good community given the number of skins etc. I remember wanting to do some from WinAmp, never got past the thumbnails etc due to other time issues.
