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.

Why don't you ask her, instead of locking her into your decision? Does she even care about being locked into a vendor? Apple is successful because they offer easy-to-use software which takes care of all the "complicated" stuff for you. Your mother just needs to decide if she wants freedom of choice, or freedom from choice. Both ways have their merit, though you might notice which one I prefer, personally. wink.gif
