4. MARS (Mindawn Audio Ripping Software)
MARS (Mindawn Audio Ripping Software) is a freely available (but not GPL) program for easily and conveniently ripping CDs into either FLAC or the Ogg Vorbis format. If you are not familiar with these formats, they available from Xiph.
Ogg Vorbis compresses smaller and creates higher fidelity files than MP3. Ogg Vorbis also doesn't have any license time bombs or restrictions associated with it as MP3 does. You can look here to see what we mean. MP3 royalties will cost you either directly as a producer or indirectly as a consumer. The FLAC format provides CD quality audio. There is no loss in the compression used, and FLAC can easily be uncompressed back out to a WAV or AIFF file.
Abcde is a frontend command-line utility (actually, a shell script) that grabs tracks off a CD, encodes them to ogg or mp3 format, and tags them, all in one go.

Dagrab is a program for reading audio tracks from a cdrom drive into wav sound files. It should work with any cdrom drive,provided that digital audio extraction is supported from both the drive and its linux driver, but is only tested with IDE cdroms. If your cd is not IDE, you better try out other programs, like cdparanoia (all cd brands) or cdda2wav (SCSI and IDE only); they' re both free and available on the net; cdparanoia should be the best one, but I didn't try it out enough yet.
