If you have never backed up your music by anything but WMP or ITunes software, you will need to understand going in, that there are multiple choices, on multiple choices. You should read up a little before going head-first into this program. There is a config wizard, use it.
My primary goal was to back up my CD collection, with the best (in my case) option for keeping the originally intended quality. I made a mistake after assuming I had set up FLAC, and had to redo about 20 CD's. This process takes time, but because it is doing the job VERY WELL. In a non-scientific way of explaining the process.. the software actually looks at your CD, and if it is damaged, goes out to a database and finds what is missing on your CD and fixes it from the database.
Your CD-Rom plays a major role in all of this. The speed, the firmware and type of CD-Rom has to be 'approved' by the software before you can start any of the above. What happened with me was, I kept putting in CD's (8 of them) and all I would get was a INVALID KEY error. I went to the website and found that every CD-Rom has to be 'calibrated' and all I had to do was keep feeding it CD's until (3) of them were of the right criteria, so the CD-Rom would then be setup correctly. It hasnt burped since. Once I found the 1st CD, the next 2 passed easily.. and I was good-to-go.
I recommend this software because it is free, functional, and thorough. Documentation and help is all over the internet... Google if you get stuck.
