Hello, all. The plot thickens. Following up to my message from yesterday, 
It seems that I have somehow managed to get windows media player to rip 
files again, but I'm not sure if I can get the quality low enough to be 
useful for ripping audio books into mp3 format. Even though I know 
perfectly well that it should be doing so with no problem, my computer 
simply won't read any of the media player 10.0 dialogue boxes. That's a 
problem for another day, though, as I suspect that it probably involves 
acquiring a new video card or something equally painful and expensive. 
Anyway, Gold wave still insists that I don't have any CD drives at all, and 
thinking it might help in some way, I downloaded premeare CD creater, and 
it just says there's an unknown error and ejects the CD. I'm thinking about 
trying freerip next, but if I recall from the one time I tried it a few 
years back, it was incredibly slow.
Do you think that downloading cdex might help, or is there a chance that 
ripping books to a low-quality format suitable for audio books might be an 
option in a future release of the bookport software?
Thanks for reading, and I hope that everyone is having a great day.
