There WERE a few different companies that offered this ripping service years ago. I remember seeing their ads and thinking I wouldn't want to part with my 1000 or so CDs to put the job in the hands of others. Really, it would only make sense that they need to verify that you own the disc for legal reasons, but there would be no reason to not just have most of this stuff on their hard drives. Really, how many times over and over would they rip "Thriller" or "Dark Side of the Moon" before they'd just say copy it off Drive R" or something?

I haven't seen them advertised in awhile, though.

Yeah, I remember seeing services like that mentioned, but not lately.

I could see them copying off of their own hard drives to save time, but you'd hope they'd at least be aware of different masterings if they resorted to that.

You'd hope, but it's probably not likely.

Thanks guys.

There are still a number of services that will do this. It's totally legal, though I don't know what hoops they must jump through to keep the RIAA off their backs. Unlike DVDs, CDs have no encryption so you're not breaking the law when making an archive copy of something you paid for. So, as long as you keep the CDs the MP3s/FLAC/whatever files are perfectly legal.

If I choose a service and go with this I'll post my experience.
