Using Sound Juicer to Upload CDs to your Linux PC

Uploading CDs to your Linux PC using the Sound Juicer Application

Fedora 15 ships with an application called Sound Juicer as standard which is very similar in operation to CD Player. Simply insert the CD to upload into the drive: Fedora will recognise it as an audio CD and pop up a dialogue box to ask you which application you wish to use to open it: pick "Audio CD Extractor" and click on the "OK" button:

Sound Juicer will start, read the audio CD and try to recognise it: if it can't, it will ask you to manually identify it:

Here, you can change exactly how you want your music to be uploaded (-and where):

If you only want to extract a subset of tracks (-the default is to extract them all), remove the unwanted track(s) by clicking in the selection box to the left of the track name:
