I am copying music from normal audio CD's in order to burn a music collection CD, intended for listening on a normal CD player.
I am seeking advice mainly on the CD-to-hard-drive copying stage:
a) What is a good way to do it (Windows doesn't seem to want to do it; I was able to do it with Real; are there other ways?)?
b) How should I do it so that quality losses are negligible (i.e. what bitrate? are there parameters others than bitrate?)
I would appreciate any help, especially in the form of informative links, as I realise that this is hardly an exotic topic
Thanks a lot,
