What windows (2K) software do you prefer to rip CDs to mp3? (Aside from iTunes, which I had to uninstall after it totally hosed my machine.)

I still like Exact Audio Copy, though their site seems to be hosed this morning.

BonkEnc is quick and free (open source).

I used CDex with Windows, it worked very well (but given I use OS X now, iTunes is the weapon of choice).

The latest version of iTunes seems to be kinder to Win2k in my experience. I also use CDEx though, if I don't want to rip to AAC.

This was on Ask.Me a couple weeks ago, more answers back there.

I was surprised it hadn't been asked before. I looked through the archives and didn't see anything.

Thanks for the advice. CDEx it is.

I used CDex on the counsel of the previous thread on the subject, and found it to be remarkably agile and effective.

Turns out this is a triple post, and so I really apologize. I didn't realize I was only checking the January archives.
