Dave's Desktop: Drag 'n' Drop CD Ripping with Konqueror

Ripping tracks from a CD into OGG or MP3 is one of the most popular things we do with our home PCs these days. This How-To shows you how you can do this task quickly and easier than ever before, with the help of KDE and Konqueror. Read the complete article at Dave's Desktop - Ep. 21.


Drag'n'drop CD-ripping is by far no new feature of KDE 3.4.

I would gladly pay if KDE could deliver on the marketing front.

But it seems my $20/year donations are not going to help much unless more people do the same.

Interesting comparison between KDevelop and Visual Studio.

I've got the same problem and finally got it solved. Just right click on Data, then clear layout, and make sure on "option" (under the "Data CD Option"), File system is JOLIET and CD-ROM Mode is Mode2. Good luck. Amy
