I have got somewhere in the ballpark of about 400-500 CD's, and I want them gone. Last year I went crazy and threw away all their jewel (or other) cases. Now I am sick of looking at my huge stack of totally unorganized binders.
But, the thing is I don't really know how to go about this. I want to keep the music in digital format. My only "must-haves" are that I want the digital audio to be as quality as the CD audio, no loss in fidelity, and hopefully as "future-proof" as possible.
Left on my own, I would probably just use Windows Media Player, drop all my disks into .mp3 format and slap them on an external HDD, but I figure I should get some outside input before I do that, as my knowledge of such things is very limited.
