Hi folks -- I've tried to do this on my own, but I'm a bit of a luddite so it's come to this:

I would like to hire someone in the NY area who can guide me through the process of ripping and archiving my CD collection (~1500 CD's) to an external 250 GB drive. I would like to use a combination of lossless (FLAC or Monkey's Audio) and MP-3. Ideally, I'd like to find someone who's familiar with the basics of ripping, encoding, compression, normalization and knows how to use FLAC, Monkey's Audio, MP3Gain, EAC, Lame, RazorLame and Foobar2000.

I am on a PC, with XP Home Edition. Please contact me if you're interested.

Thanks in advance, Michael

2nd free advice

-using a lossless format on 1 CD will probably give you a file about 250MB (conservative estimate)
- After formating a 250GB HD you are probably looking at about 235 GB actual storage space
- Therefore you would only get about 900 CDs on it without any in mp3 format
-You should also consider whether you want to back up all this information.

But I could do with some extra coin, if you want to fedex it to canada smile.gif

I am capable of setting up EAC for a perfect rip, with CUE sheets using a Plextor drive & encoding to any lossless or lossy format, replaygain, normalization, scan covers if wanted, I have all the needed software+hardware & would do this for free, just as long the person supplied the HDD or CD-R's to back-up thier collection & gave me some time however I live in Melbourne, Australia. Anyone who live's in the area & interested, PM me. smile.gif
