Re: how to put .cda files from cd to hard drive then....

Making a single copy for personal use of ANY disc, tape, etc. is allowed by law.
You are allowed to backup anything that you own for yourself only.
Therefore, even commercial CDs have a time and a place to be copied.
-Only once, at home, by the owner, for the owner.

Of course it's better to use EAC to make sure the copy is as accurate and complete as possible.

As for fan based tradeable stuff, making audio CD copies for folks to enjoy listening to is great, but if someone is going to trade that music further, they should trade with the original flac/shn/ape fileset, not from an audio CDR rip...
"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
- Dr. Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005)
