I'm quite new to the current windows generation and which programs to use and what is good. So far I'm using EAC and Foobar2000 which is working perfectly.. What I have left I am looking for is a good mixer with a taskbar applet I can use the mousewheel on, a good DVD player, a all-purpose zip/rar/tar.gz compression tool, a music tagger/file renamer, and a DVD ripper/encoder. If you guys could help me with these or link me to a site with good recommendations, I'd love you smile.gif

Thanks!

I'm curious - why did you leave Linux? Most people go to Linux, but I don't hear of many coming back from it!

As for your programs...

DVD Player - PowerDVD or TheaterTek
zip/rar/tar.gz - WinRAR
music tagger/file renamer - Foobar can actually tag for you. Other then that I hear things about Tag & Rename and Helium2. There is always Case's Tag with the Tagger frontend.
DVD ripper/encoder - can't help you here. Never tried it at all.

For compression/decompression, use 7-zip! It supports tar.bz2,tar.gz et cetera, most important if yaou are running Linux, i don't know may progs that support bz2. It's also completly free!!

www.7-zip.com

I don't like 7-zip for tar.gz and tar.bz2. It can't untar AND unbz2/ungz simultaneously, like WinRAR does.

Besides, 7z doesn't support RAR compressing, and he asked for a "compression tool"

DVD ripper: my favorite is DVD Decrypter

Ah,

The reason i never mentioned it was, last time i used WinRAR was literally years ago, it either didn't support bz2 then r i didn't configure it properly!

I guess WinRAR is an ok choice then, i may check it out, because the point you metioned about tar.bz2 is a bit annoying, i VERY rarley compress though (data!)

Cheers,

Kristian

For unpacking a meriad of different archive formats including bz2, rar, tar, etc., the freeware archiver Iceows is rather impressive - http://www.iceows.com/
