A couple days ago I was fortunate to find several dozen CDs that I like at a Goodwill for cheap. I having been reading some about JRiver and Foobar and think I will start ripping CD's to my laptop. Question: Do I go ahead and rip them to my computer with Media Player or do I wait and use JRiver or Foobar to do the ripping? I have looked online to find the answer but that info is alluding me somehow. So, does it matter to go ahead and rip them until I get the software or does this mess something up? If it's ok to go ahead and use MP to rip them is there a best ripping option as there are many to choose from, i.e. Mp3. Wav loseless, etc.
here are some of the sites I've been looking for info without finding the answer yet:
I think because it is so basic of a question that it's not addressed in the threads (at least where I have looked) becasue there's an assumption that most already know.
