For audio CDs:

EAC to rip. This can also be set up to produce lossy or lossles formats.
Freac standalone converter for formats.
MP3tag standalone tagger for metadata.

A big learning curve but once you do a few it will be easy.

Would you be willing to share your process (software for ripping, encoding settings for the files you put in plex, etc)? I have an internal BD drive that I bought largely for this reason, but I haven't really found a great workflow for converting my discs to a Plex-friendly format.

I got a couple of these about 2 months back when it was $40 after rebate with free shipping. The light on top is stupid but they can still stack. I've been using them to rip my physical media collection to plex and they work for that. Haven't used them to burn anything.

I bit. Needed an external drive for my new laptop that doesn't have optical drive. Wasn't going to go Blu-ray, but the price is right. Reviews on NewEgg are mixed, but Amazon reviews were better. Hopefully rebate is smooth. Haven't done a MIR in ages.

Also interested. Looking to purchase multiple drives to rip CD collection in parallel. Curious if anyone has experience.

Are you referring to audio CD's? If so I have used windows media player with great results, also Imgburn should do good for either music or data.

Just ordered one. Newegg is a bit of a pain on rebates - because they don't give you your invoice number until everything is processed - but not a big deal. have been looking for a good BluRay 3.0 and this was more than I wanted but the price was good. Thanks!

Can anyone confirm if this drive is "UHD Friendly" meaning it will read 4k UHD discs and therefore allow ripping with MakeMKV if you have the volume key.

edit: NVM. the 16D1-HT internal is $53 after rebate and is definitely "UHD Friendly".

I ripped with one drive on a Mac with iTunes. You can set it to auto-import upon detecting a CD, reads track names, and then auto eject when complete.

Feeding new discs as I walk by, I was done after about two weeks.

I'm not sure if iTunes supports multiple drives in parallel.... never tried it.

I did use 3 drive stacked with Handbrake to rip DVDs, but it goes thru them sequentially. Just allows me to queue up more at a time.
