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!!!

Soooooo, your plan is to encode to a format encumbered with patents.. If you're willing to use AAC you might as well use itunes..

Why not encode to Ogg Vorbis? Android natively plays it..

I'm not that bothered by patents and legal crap. AAC (in a standard container, not the proprietary Apple one) is the modern MP3. Everything plays it, but you get much better sound or lower file sizes than the very aged MP3.

OGG, not so much.. I made that mistake in the past. Ended up reripping my entire collection when I bought a device that didn't want to know...

Seems like CueRipper might be the perfect tool. Simple and does exactly what's needed without any additional confusing bumf.

You should have ripped to lossless in the first place. Re-ripping my CDs after I lost my backup took me weeks, but converting my entire FLAC collection to lossy takes only about 4 hours.
