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]

I have a bunch of mp3 mixes which are 1 or 2 hours long and would like to make a playlist which only plays a snippets of these mp3's (e.g the playlist would be something like: radiomix1.mp3 from 22:02 to 25:46 then radiomix2.mp3 10:12 - 12:01 etc) Is this possible using normal playlists? I normally use winamp but I can't see a way to do this.
