    I have my entire CD collection saved in MP3 (Why oh why did I bother???). I now have a transporter, and want to create a seperate library in lossless format, how do I best acheive this? I probably need to buy an external hard drive to put it all onto ... Can someone give me a tutorial on how to do all this? Cheers Andrew.

    1) Install an nice big disk.
    2) get it working.
    3) grab your stack of CDs.
    4) repeat until done:
    5) put CD in computer
    6) run extraction tool
    7) compress to FLAC (*can be done automagically with #6)
    8) remove CD, and get next one

    After than, treat the FLAC library as the One Truth, and use a tool like
    flac2mp3 to make MP3s as needed.

    These are all great links. I'd also check out the AutoFLAC frontend to
    EAC: http://legroom.net/software/autoflac

    AutoFLAC is nice because it handles all of the interaction with EAC,
    making ripping CDs a one-click operation.
