| files that I want converted into a mirror of my player.  I then use
| "Unison"(dries) to update the player, which mounts as a usb device to my
| preferred list.
| All of this is done in gnome.  I needed something easy for my wife to use.
| With the correct plugins, grip can rip to mp3 from a drop-down menu.
Hi there,
I use Sound Juices.  After having done the modifications described in
the help docs and added the extra required software it works nicely.

Fortunately, as I am unable to get Amarok to recognize my cd/dvd player.
