Ripping a CD to wav or ogg format

To rip a CD, follow these steps:

  1. Load the CD into the CD-ROM drive. Jack should automatically detect the music CD. If several CD-ROM drives are present, select the correct CD-ROM drive from the CD drop down menu. To update the CD contents, click the Refresh CD button.

  2. If the CD has a record in the CDDB (Online CD database) Jack will automatically retrieve the title, artist and track names of the CD. To edit a track name, right click the track name and select Rename from the pop up menu.

  3. Select where the output (ripped tracks) should be stored. Click the ... button to browse for a location.

  4. Select the format of the output. Currently the options available are WAV, WMA, OGG and MP3. Select the desired format from the Format drop down menu.

  5. To rip all tracks, click the RIP button. To rip selected tracks, highlight the tracks to rip by holding down the shift key while clicking on the tracks. Click the RIP button when the desired tracks have been selected.

  6. A status window will display the ripping progress.

    When the window disappears, the tracks have been successfully ripped, and will be displayed in the destination file browser.
