And as the tedium sets in of ripping (you used the term right) just think: you will soon be carrying your entire CD collection...in the palm of your hand. [emoji106]
Appreciate the info about the CD to MP3. I didn't know that one could fit so many songs onto a USB drive. Now it makes sense WHY there isn't a CD player in newer vehicles. If I can get 100's of songs onto a single USB drive, it beats carrying a CD case with CDs and swapping them constantly.
