I was trying to rip a CD - Drama by french outfit Drama.
Track 8 of the CD is corrupted (Excalibur) - this was my favourite track.
Can somebody email me a 320kbps MP3 file for this track please.
You can private message me and I will give you my email address to send me the file.
Regards....and thanks in advance
Play me my song.....Here it comes again.......

Sory I don't have it but you can buy it on Amazon for 99p

I have added the album to my streaming service to have a listen. I don't have much French prog other than Lazuli and Harmonium.

It's OK - I have been given a download of this track...
This site is very helpful!
I tried to find it on amazon - without success - suppose I will have to brush up on my searching skills...haha
I am currently ripping my entire CD collection to my new SSD on my new super computer  - I will then play my collection through my new Sennheiser super bins....
Mind you it will take me about six months to rip this lot - and I am realising that I have hundreds of CD's that I have never listened to....so I had better live a long time after retirement or I have wasted a lot of money!

Yeah. Especially if you are anal like me and insist on using the copy /b command to merge songs with multiple parts and also to correct the track names that the software brings back from the internet in error and erroneous artwork...

There's a lot of free software to make what you are doing simpler. The bad is when you rip from vynil. No software can help you.

You can get record decks that will let you rip vinyl to MP3, I've done it. The only problem is separating the tracks.

Try mp3split.exe or Medieval.

I recommend foobar - most versatile ripper/converter i've found (can be made more so with plugins - get the encoder pack for full functionality). It's amazingly small but very powerful and doesn't hog much RAM, and completely free/open source.

If you're still having trouble with mp3 try switching to ripping to FLAC (you can always convert that to mp3 later).

Mp3 isn't very accurate so maybe it's struggling to encode straight from disc. (You'll need the LAME encode exe to convert to mp3, but you might find it works better  than the native Windows mp3 encode, if that's what you're using currently).

MacGyver can do a super guitar solo with a broom and an elastic band. Can you do better?

I'm not ripping much, but I'm using the portable version of Format Factory which converts everything to everything else, both audio and video.
