All you have to do is click whichever album you’d like and you’ll see all the tracks and their info right there!

  2. We will send you spindles or you can pick them up in-store. All you need to do is stack your discs onto the spindles and either ship them to us or drop them off! If you had your CDs in a certain order, you can label the spindles starting at #1, #2, #3, and so on…
    *Note: You will receive your physical CDs back in the same order. Your CDs will automatically be organized alphabetically on the Flash Drive.
  3. If you are providing your own flash drive or hard drive, include it with your order. Please make sure the drive has enough storage space and can be formatted NTFS or is already formatted NTFS.

*Note: Formatting will erase everything on your drive so if your drive is not formatted NTFS and has files on it you would like to keep – do not use that drive for your CD transfer.

What does ripping a CD mean? 

CD Ripping refers to the process of extracting raw audio files from CDs and converting them from the Compact Disc Digital Audio (CD) format to a digital file format (such as WAVE or mp3 files). There are many benefits of converting your audio CD library to a digital library. These include preservation of your CDs (digital files can’t get scratched, broken, or damaged), a much more compact way to store all of your CDs, and the ability to share or upload individual tracks. In short, CD Ripping is the transfer of your CDs to digital files in a digital library.

We convert your CDs to both mp3 and WAVE Files. Which file format is best for what? 

  • mp3 – mp3 files are compressed audio files. They’re more universally compatible for listening than WAVE Files. You can play mp3 files on laptops, computers, Smart TVs, car radios, stereos, etc… They sound great and take up less space on your drive. Due to the smaller file size, this is also a great option if you’re looking to share or upload your music (sending through email, storing on mobile devices, etc.)
  • WAVE – WAVE files are a lossless uncompressed audio file format. This means they contain much more data than mp3 files. Since uncompressed formats have not lost any data, they are the highest quality files. However, they are not as universally compatible for listening as mp3 files.

Does ripping a CD damage / ruin it? 

CD ripping is essentially creating an exact digital copy of the songs on the compact disc. It does not impact the original disc or erase its contents. Furthermore, most software creates CDs as “read-only” discs. This means that devices / computers can view and play the content, but can’t alter or erase it. Therefore, we use your CDs once for playback and do not alter or change them in any way.

Do I get my original CDs back? 

Yes! Your CDs are given back to you along with your new digital files on a USB Flash Drive.
