Catalog your CD collection using iTunes
Authored by: BobMinnesotan on Apr 21, '11 01:29:05AM

The above comments raise valid points - from one point of view. However, it's important to remember that all Mac owners may not be in the same situation as those who commented. I have a 40 GB hard drive and; with my own CD collection and those discs I've inherited from relatives; now own over 800 CDs. Ripping all of them to iTunes would be an impractical use of limited available HD space and; for those of us living on a small fixed income; buying an external drive at any price would be an extravagance. I posted this tip as an alternative for those readers who don't have the luxury of ripping their entire CD collection into iTunes.

Regarding another concern addressed by those commenting; if you organize your CDs on a shelf in the order they appear in the CD Collection folder,as described, finding the jewel case takes only a matter of seconds. It's not the hassle envisioned by some readers.

It's a shame that all that music is trapped on CD's. For less than $60 you can get a 100g external Hard Drive that will hold over 1,000 CD's at 128kbps.
Better yet, for less than $100, you can get a 320g external Hard Drive and rip your Music to a FLAC format. That way you will have your Music stored in full quality that you can then easily convert later to any format you want.
