View Full Version : newbie questions
I 've just gotten the X5L and have a few questions.
Using the Jet program what is the easiest way to convert cd's and load onto the player.
Do you need to convert the wave cd to mp3 before you load it onto the player?
If you need to do this how do you convert the entire cd rather than doing it one track at a time?
Sorry for the dumb questions. Hope someone can help me out. Thanks.
You don't HAVE to convert from .wav to mp3, but .wav is uncompressed and takes up a lot of space so you will pretty quickly run out of HDD space on your X5.
Personally, I use the free CDex for ripping my CDs into compressed formats and there, you can just select all tracks if you want to rip the whole CD. Not sure how it's done in JetAudio (I never bothered to install it), but it should be similar.
If you want to use jetAudio, just insert a CD and push the Rip button in the top left corner. In the bottom left you can chose how to name your files(important cause this is what you will see in the file browser), where to put them, and what output format you want to have.
And as pete said, you don't have to convert, put you can't simply put your cd's on the player as well. You have to rip them first, either way.
And have fun with that, i have only slightly over 100 CD's, and it took ages.
Use iTunes. The latest version rips at a speed of 20x to 192kb/s MP3.
I personally use Exact Audio Copy (eac) and Lame.exe. The grabbing speed at my computer is low, speed up to max 6x. Depends on the EAC-Settings. Mine are for highest accuracy. Can be set to higher grabbing speed.
Actual Lame is very fast in VBR.
I think EAC+Lame is a very good and precise possibility, where you can put your settings the way you like it.
The disadvantage is, that the first settings seem very difficult. But using the Wizard it works fine. Had never problems with CDs and copy protection, except the CD wasn´t recognized by the computer. Old Copy protection like Sarah Connor.

I totally agree with this. CDex is the best program I've used for ripping CD's. You get to rip to a bunch of different extensions (mp3, ogg). I personally only use ogg for it's variable bit rate reaching over 400k :D and that's the MAIN reason why I got this dap.
And as far as iTunes goes... eh, I'm over it. I hate Apple.
