Thank you, I sorta looked for an "introduction" subforum and didn't see one, so I just started posting right on!
Seems like a good place to be.
I own and manage two forums, so I enjoy seeing one well ran like this one.

Thanks!

Well, hello, I will and thank you.
See...this is why I thought I MIGHT have overlooked some DRM changes. LOL
Thanks!

I had to come back here and post how totally great 7 is!
I have just ripped my entire cd collection onto my hd, created some playlists, synced my EnVtouch easily thru Windows Media, and now my songs are ready to play while I workout or mow the yard.
WOW...no third party Rhaposdy to deal with and nobody saying..you don't have the rights to do this...
How freeing!

I just noticed that 7 lets you just rip n rip n rip.
What happened with all the DRM issues a few years ago? Or is it just lurking in the background and all of these mp3s I've ripped can't be transferred to my phone to listen to when I jog?
Thanks!
It's my understanding that MP3 has no DRM capability built into it. If you were ripping into WMA, you would want to make sure the copy protect option was not checked, of course.
My solution is not to rip into any lossy codec. I rip with EAC, which is a better ripper than WMP or iTunes, and I rip to .flac. Then from there, I "convert to new destination" to either LAME MP3 VBR, WMA VBR, or m4a for use on my Sony and Samsung players.

Hi there

+1 for FLAC which I use for my Squeezebox system -- it will also play 24 bit 96 khz flac files -- better than CD quality at 16 bit 44.1 (or 48) khz.

You can then copy that to mp3 or whatever for other players such as Sony walkmans or Ipods.

Why you would WANT to add DRM is beyond me.

Cheers

Uh...just to clear up..mine works perfectly.

It wasn't really a question now, but more of a confirmation that apparently you can rip mp3 and transfer to a device without DRM becoming an issue.

Digital Rights Management? DRM? they should've called it Content, Restriction, Annulment, and Protection. Crap for short
