A good CD ripper??
Is it me or is there a lack of good CD rippers. Or at least current ones as it seems to me that a lot are not really being maintained? Asunder seems to work reasonably well but 2008 is the last update, some of the others are even older. I have Rubyripper which works quiet well and is very comprehensive but takes twice as long as anything else to rip because it's doing each track twice to compare them.
I just want a good everyday fast ripper.
Are you talking about one for audio tracks?
If so, I usually just use Rythmbox.
Simple, fairly quick.
Yes just CD tracks.

That said I just did a test rip using RB and it came out OK
I usually use K3b on my CentOS system. It's a front-end to various ripping and burning tools. Makes ripping mp3's from CD's trivial.
If you have KDE, give Amarok a try :)
I'd use dd for this.
If I want to listen to a CD I point my Audioplayer to my Image =)
How do you get dd to copy the audio CD? On my system I keep getting an Input/output error on /dev/hda (the drive containing the CD).
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=image.iso bs=2k

Ok. I was using /dev/hda. I'll try the cdrom method. Thanks.
Ok. Even using /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdrom-hda I still get the Input/output error whether running as a regular user, sudo, or root. I'm running CentOS 5.5 if that matters.
