  • Instead of extracting all songs, you can choose a single track or a range of tracks to extract. For example, to extract tracks 3 through 5, add the-t3+5 option. To extract just track 9, add -t9+9 . To extract track 7 through the end of the CD, add -t7.

    If you have a low-quality CD drive or an imperfect CD, cdda2wav might not be the best ripping tool. You might try cdparanoia -B to extract songs from the CD to hard disk instead.

    4. When cdda2wav is done, insert a blank CD into your writable CD drive.

    5. Use the cdrecord command to write the music tracks to the CD. For example:
    # cdrecord -v dev=/dev/cdrom -audio *.wav

    The options to cdrecord tell the command to create an audio CD ( -audio) on the writable CD device located at /dev/cdrom. The cdrecord command writes all .wav files from the current directory. The -v option causes verbose output.

    6. If you want to change the order of the tracks, you can type their names in the order you want them written (instead of using*.wav). If your CD writer supports higher speeds, you can use the speed option to double (speed=2) or to quadruple (speed=4) the writing speed.

    After you have created the music CD, indicate the contents of the CD on its label side. It's now ready to play on any standard music CD player.

    Ripping CDs with Grip

    For GNOME users, the Grip window provides a more graphical method of copying music from CDs to your hard disk so that you can play the songs directly from your hard disk or burn them back onto a blank CD. Besides just ripping music, you can also compress each song as you extract it from the CD. You can open Grip from the red hat menu by selecting Sound & Video Grip (or by typing grip from a Terminal window). Figure 20-6 shows an example of the Grip window.
