    I used MusicMatch 8.0 to rip a CD to MP3s. When I try to load them to my RIO 500 MP3 player, the times are all 0:00 so they won't play. I tried ripping them again, with the same results.

    I then tried ripping one of the songs using RealOne, and then the time came out okay. However, I can only rip at 96 instead of 128 (with MusicMatch).

    Why is MusicMatch ripping this CD this way? Is there a setting I need to change? It's only happening with a handful of CDs (out of more than 50). Is there another free ripping program that doesn't have spyware that rips at 128?

    I downloaded a couple of other ones but they either had spyware or gave me an error that no CD devices were found. My CD drives function perfectly (play audio CDs, VCDs, DVDs, record to CDs, etc.)

    I too like CDex (use the built in Lame encoder), but I would suggest beta 9 version, the newest release has a problem with digital audio preview (if you are using XP with no sound card cable).

    Apparently the problem is that the program I use to transfer the files to my MP3 player can't handle the ID3v2 tags. MusicMatch is adding these.

    Can I stop MM from doing this? And can I remove these tags from the MP3s I already have?

    What's the point of these tags?

    Any help is appreciated.

    It's been awhile but I think you could clear them in WinAmp.

    With CDex you can choose which tags you prefer. See attachment.
