If you're still buying your music on shiny round discs and want to rip it on the go, the ¥19,800
(about $169) SeaGrand ez6 seems like a relatively painless way to get it done. Put a disc in the portable player, plug
in a USB drive or SD card, and rip away. Of course, you won't have the usual conveniences of Gracenote integration and
ID3 tagging, but if you, say, pick up a CD in an airport kiosk and need to get it onto your digital audio player by
flight time, this will get it done.
