    ... If fixing CD information on iTunes before you rip the disc does any damage to it? I would imagine not, since you're merely relabeling things, like fixing a track or band name that's been input wrong, but I tend to be a bit paranoid about these things.

    It doesn't. You are not physically writing into the CD. You should be good :)

    Thanks. :)

    I finally started ripping CDs again today. I don't look forward to how long it will take though. I'll have to prioritize what should go on first. Preferred artists etc.

    What are you using to do the ripping?

    iTunes, since I use an iPod. I've always used iTunes anyway, it was the first music ripping software I ever used so I'm familiar and comfortable with it.

    So are ripping lossless or lossy?

    I'm using the default, AAC encoder on iTunes plus. I just want to rip to be able to have something semi-decent to put on my iPod.

    If you are going lossy, rip at the highest bit rate possible.

    It depends on how many songs you want to have on your iPod.

    I had a whole other thread about this subject. I tried that and didn't like how long it took to move stuff to the iPod and how little I could get on it. I'm not really doing this for archive purposes, just as a means of having transportable music to enjoy.

    As many as I can or want. With a pretty substantial CD collection, I usually have my iPod filled pretty much to capacity, although sometimes I hold back because too may choices leads to indecision.

    I mean the higher the bit rate, the larger the file, the less number of songs you can have on your iPod. It's a question of compromise between the audio quality (bit rate) and the file size.
