Best way to digitize & organize CD and DVD library?
January 9, 2013 12:37 PM Subscribe
Finishing up a home organization project... I'm facing several boxes of (music) CDs, and one box of (movie) DVDs. What's the best way of digitizing & storing the music & movie files?
Music - I know how to rip a CD into iTunes, but how would one digitize several boxes of CDs? Any preferred/reliable/trustworthy vendors out there?
Movies - I know how to digitize a DVD, but not sure how to retain cinematic resolution, or - just as importantly - how to get a file that resides happily alongside other movies in iTunes. (Would rather not end up with a disk image of the DVD.) Once in iTunes, I should be able to get it on the iPad, stream it through an AppleTV, etc.
Looking for a fully legal solution. This is just for personal storage, to preserve these files before the physical plastic media go bad; no plans for torrenting or otherwise sharing the files.
