I am interested in bulding a ripping station that I can put multiple CD drives into, and hopefully rip multiple CDs at the same time. Does anyone know of an encoder that I could run multiple instances of, and associate each instance with a particular drive? Ideally I would have a SATA hard drive (or two) and 4 ide CDRom drives in the system, and I would just drop a disk in each drive and let it go. When a disk is done, it pops it out and I put in a new disk and keep on going. I am mainly interested in 320kb mp3, though the ability to do FLAC would be nice as well. What would be my bottleneck in the system? CPU? hard drive speed? IDE bus? Has anyone tried anything like this before? Thanks for your input.
