Mother has a Nexus7, and it's a fantastic device, she wants to copy music to it from her CD's Now I could do it for her, but I would prefer to show her how to do it herself. The problem is, I have yet to find a suitable program. They are either WAY to complex and are a sledgehammer to crack a nut (MediaMonkey), or don't support M4A with embeded album art (EAC), or do M4a, but don't support album (FreAc)

Surely there must be something out there suitable?

The requirements are:

  • Easy to use (1 click rip/encode/get album art)
  • M4A AAC format
  • Embedded Album Art


Help!!!

I would not recommend it under normal circumstances, but iTunes meets your criteria perfectly.

My mother would never forgive me for getting her locked into eveything Apple. I have never been able to fathom why anyone would **WANT** to be willingly told by Apple what proprietary formats and accessories they have to buy. Most sane people I know understand the benefits of an open market, and would never touch anything with the Apple logo on it (same applies to Kindle...)


Have a few options here to investigate.

Many thanks.

I think the people here that are trying to help you are sane regardless of what tech products they use.

It sure didn't sound like you were looking for something FOSS for your mother's Fedora Linux computer FFS. Using iTunes solely as a ripper isn't going to lock your mother into Apple's evil universe. In fact, its AAC encoder is one of the best and MuncherOfSpleens merely recommended due to its seeming ease of use and familiarity.

Edited because I falsely attributed a recommendation to a different poster.
