Wouldn't it actually be faster to rip the cds to MP3s than creating disk images?
If you have the tiime to make disk images, then you've certainly got the time to rip the cds.

I agree, since ripping often runs at speeds between, say, 3x and 10x. Building an image USUALLY runs at either 1x or 2x speeds (no matter how fast your drive runs; there are sound technical reasons for this but I have no clue what they may be). You waste a LOT of time imaging the CD's, not to mention massive amounts of disk space.
