Hello!
Thank you for reading.
I just got an Sony Walkman mp3 player and I want to put my cd collection on it. What is the best software for this?
Usually I like freeware, but I'm willing to pay a bit for something that has instructions I can find and has some user recommendations to reassure me.
Thanks again! :P

BC maintains a thread entitled "Freeware Replacements for Common Commercial Apps" -- <HERE>. Cursor down to the section titled "CD & DVD Applications" for several suggestions and links. Exact Audio Copy and Express Rip look like a match. (I use EAC -- it does a great job, but it can be a bit slow since it really, really tries to make an EXACT copy!)

Best way I've found is to rip it using Windows Media Player and use the online database to fill in the id3 Tags. I transferred my 700+ CD collection to MP3 a few years back.

Word of advice, make CD/DVD backups of the MP3 files. If you're like me and end up with 120GB+ of music you Do Not want to do it again. Also organization is key make sure the rip to folder is where you want it all to go in the end. windows Media Player should also be able to sync the walkman so it can perform both functions instead of needing 2 separate programs.
