Default I lost tons of music

So i ripped all my CD's to my computer a while ago. The stuff i ripped is gone.

Their's no CD Text or CDDB infomation on the CD's so this makes it nearly impossible to rip once again.

Should have checked and then checked again to make sure you had it backed up.

external hhd's are very good for backup, but forgetting to format can be a royal pain and loss of data. i have everything on every hhd backed up to DVD's. when i finally can afford the blue ray burner, i wont have so many discs.

as far as ripping goes, the time takes as fast as your processor and memory can handle..and it helps to make sure there isnt smudges or scratches from the cd your ripping.
