    When I try to rip a cd on my windows 7 media player, it comes up as unknown and I cannot sync it to USB device.

    Yes I have Windows 7, so the solution is a upgrade on Windows or the CD ripper?

    In My opinion ... CD Ripper is more intuitive to use with less buttons to find and push.

    There are several free CD rippers, I haven't seen any that has the sync option.

    I have no idea if the one my colleague has provided - syncs to usb
    I pointed out to you that he had provided the link to the one he suggests - thinking that you may have missed it when you asked
    You will either have to examine it or wait for my colleague to reply
    I use WMP

    Unless I'm mistaken, MS no longer provides a lookup service (ie: CDDB). So WMP is not able to pull that information.

    Personally, I use MediaMonkey.

    My 2¢, yesterday I installed the program mentioned in post # 3 and ripped a CD to test the program on my Win 7 computer.
    This is what the mp3 shows
    Name # Title Contributing Artists Album

    Under Name is says Original Soundtrack (It's from a movie)
    The number is the track on the CD
    The title is the name of the song
    Contributing artists only says Original Soundtrack and not who actually sang the song
    Album says the name of the movie

    I don't tag songs. I simply copy them to our mp3 players and rarely look at the screen which darkens after 10 seconds.

    FWIW .... My 3¢ ....
    I use MP3Tag .... And fill in or edit the tags.
    Many new cars don't come with CD players nowadays.
    My Friends (many musicians) are keeping me busy ripping CDs and making USB flash drives to replace their obsolete CDs
    The newer cars can Show and Select Tracks/Albums by the tags.
