I had been using Audiograbber for years, but for some reason it didn't work with my new SATA DVDCD drive. And rather than use WMP I decided to come here and check out the free programs. I dl'd and installed FairStars, and within 15 minutes I had my CD ripped, with all the files properly named in the properly named folder. It would have been even faster but I had to experiment a little with the file/folder naming option (at first I ended up with 19 separate folders). But it's pretty easy to figure out once you understand the options. I'd suggest using the "Preview" feature first, before ripping, just to make sure.
The interface could be a little better (i.e. clicking right on the names to edit the artists, files on Various Artists compilation CD's, rather than having to click Ctl+E) but that's a minor concern. Like the Subject Line says -- FairStars does what it's supposed to do. And it does it quickly and easily. FairStars is now my new CD ripper.
