After seeing the light, and relizing that AudioGrabber is not really that great of a program, I have switched to Exact Audio Copy (based on a recomendation from someone on this forum) for my ripping needs. The reason I am wanting to rip my CDs is because I have an AudioTron and I am still trying to get all my CDs (or at least the ones I listen to) onto my hard drive. The span of time covering my various posts here is a testament to the problems I've been having with this huge project. Any way, now I'm down to the last few problem CDs and some of them just wont rip. I'm not asking for a miracle solution. Some of them are scratched really badly, and some even have lable-side scratches. I have tried making copies of the disks first and then ripping the copy, with mixed results. I may have to try ripping some of them analog. I got a DiscDr. thing and that has helped some, but I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions.
