I would like to copy all my cds to my computer. I ripped a couple of discs in window media player at what I think are the best settings. They downloaded as a wav file set at the best quality. When I open the individual songs, it says it is a wav file, bit rate of 1411kbps. Is this what I'm looking for, is this the best way or do I need to download some software etc? One cd downloaded very quickly the other really slowed down with the last two songs. I see others using FLAC files etc but the wav file is supposed to be bit perfect so which is better? Is the disc player in the computer adequate for ripping or is an external player required. Help! I looking for best of quality not to be compromised for storage space, within reason ofcourse. I have read some of the starter threads here, great info, but still confusing to me.
