Rip CDs to AIFF from the Finder Desktop
I rip a lot of CD tracks into the AIFF format and do not wish them to be part of my iTunes library. I discovered that if I leave iTunes running in the background, I can insert a CD and the CD will be mounted on the Desktop with the album and tracks named from whatever online database iTunes uses. I can then copy the tracks or the entire album using plain old drag-and-drop in the Finder.

Rip CDs to AIFF from the Finder

This has been in OS X since 10.0 (except 10.1 for some reason). It is really nice feature.

This is a great feature indeed. I'll tell you why: This allows you to rip copy-protected cd's! Recently one of my friends brought over Chingy's new cd and I wanted to rip it but the box said it had copy protection. On the cd there was a player to play the cd on Mac but I didn't need it. Normally the only thing you see is a volume with the player on it. Now I got two volumes, one with the player and one with .aiff files as mentioned. I could just copy them to my HD and do whatever I wanted with them.

I tried the cd in windows and it only showed the player...
