Well I might not be an expert but, In my opinion Adaptec's software is probably ok for Audio stuff. If you save the audio tracks off as a wav, and then back to another cd as a cd track you shouldn't lose any quality. I use a variety of software for audio stuff. A lot of it is free. If you get the full CD Creator Deluxe, it comes with spin doctor (I'm not sure if it comes with the regular ver.) Spin Doctor allows you to grab from several different CDs and put them on one CD all at the same time. It simply asks you to insert each disk one at a time while it grabs the tracks you selected from that particular cd.
Once again, this is just my humble, non expert opinion. I'm curious what anybody else has to say.
