I’m trying to figure out how to completely automate CD ripping. There are commercial services that will rip your CD collection for about $1.10 per CD. I want to create similar side business in my town, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how to automate the process.
I’m open to any and all suggestions regarding CD changers, autoloaders, robotics, etc. I’m sure there has to be a device similar to the CD Duplicators that could be used to move disks to and from a CDROM for ripping. There are already a lot of ripping applications available that will automatically begin ripping/encoding when a CD is inserted, and they will eject the CD when ripping completes. I just need some kind of robotic/changing device to move the disks.
I’m also open to suggestions regarding this business idea. Do you think it would work? Is it a stupid idea? Too much labor, too little reward?
