thx

hope I can help
No, WAV is only when I intend to edit the files. I received a bunch of CDRs from someone to work on, his own recordings from DAT and MD from the 1990s and 2000s. (I used to be a purist ("as close to the original recording as possible") but I moved on to "best listenable" so I apply amplification, normalisation, and EQ when necessary to make a recording worth listening to over and over again.) When he's making a new transfer he's sending me the WAV directly, but there's still that bunch of CDRs.

Thunar (an Ubuntu file manager) does not show .cda files and does not copy anything like that. I think the .cda files are something that Windows does when trying to read a Red Book CD format.

Thanks for the help and explanation. I learnt some stuff here.

I use NERO Burning ROM.
It is easy to save the audio from a CD in many formats and put the files where you want them.

Re: Ripping from CD(R)

well first of all you need to check is there a better available source.. burned cdrs rarely are the best available source these days. you shouldn't bother ripping those unless you research, it pollutes the trading pool.

for example date and name of band? 99% its already out there, and you can save a lot of time.

also do you know about burned-in TAO gaps and SBEs? you should look for those as well

you need wav editor for that..

so its a big hassle for nothing unless you have a 1/1,000,000 cdr. document each band and date, resarch on google, etree, archive etc etc

tell me if there's anything you don't understand. hope this helps.

That's probably Windows only. And hitting Super+F (Win+F) for Thunar file manager and drag the WAV files into a folder is quicker for me.

I always check if there is a different or better source. Most of the CDRs were never traded, some older shows that came from tape I have myself on tape or in digital form. I don't bother if the quality is lower than what I have! Ripping and editing takes a lot of time, I try and prevent doing that whenever I can.

I will have to look into "burned-in TAO gaps" and "SBEs", will do that, thanks. Not sure if someone can do that by accident. The CDRs I have were burnt directly after transfer to hard disk, only track indices added.
