For some reason, when I try to rip/import anything off a CD, all the audio on my laptop slows down to a choppy crawl. [more inside]

For some reason my copy of Deltron 3030 [The Instrumentals]
CD just will not rip to mp3 without serious artifacts appearing on the mp3 version. The CD plays fine on every stereo I have tried but will not rip on any of the Macs I have here at home. Anyone know where I might obtain a copy of the MP3 version of these songs hopefully for free since I already legally own the album and just want them on my iPod? Or on the other hand, anyone know how I might rip these successfully? [more inside]

What options do I have for ripping CD's without a PC.
I'm looking for any options whereby I can rip CD's to an external hard disk without having to use a full-blown PC.

I'm looking to rip my 300 CDs on to my computer in preparation for an portable audio player. What is the best quality compressed format for music? I'm thinking MP3, as its universal - but as far as I can see there are different types of MP3 driver/convertor formats. Help me through the minefield!
(As a bonus question, what's considered the ultimate 20gig(ish) MP3 player at the moment?)

Once in a while a friend comes along with a really cool new CD. What I want to do is: Instantly Rip it to my hard disk, listen to it at the same time, and talk to my friend.
What I do now instead is: Start ripping, wait until the first track is finished, then listen to the first track while ripping the others. Talking gets difficult because every now and then I have to enqueue the next track to the player.

How do I encode hidden tracks on my CDs that appear before track 1. In my CD player I just hit backawards search to listen to them. Is there an easier way than recording a .wav and encoding that? Why aren't iTunes and Winamp equipped to find these?

CDex question. I'm liking it in all regards, but still banging my head over one convenience feature. Isn't there a way to get it to encode a CD as MP3s, and drop the MP3s into a folder with the artist or album title? All I can get it to do is dump MP3 files into its generic "output" folder, and it's slowing down my mass ripping. Help a stupid CDex newbie!

Does anyone know of a free (emphasis on FREE) program for Mac (or something I can run through X-11) that can either 1. rip just part of a CD track to MP3 or 2. create a new file from part of an MP3? I'm annoyed with "hidden" tracks that introduce 15 minutes of silence when my iPod is on random.
