How can I rip an audio CD from the command line in Windows?
I've noticed that there are many programs under Linux, but under Windows, all CD rippers are with a graphical interface.
There's actually quite a few options
I'm personally a huge fan of cuetools, and one of the options it has is the cuetools console ripper - download the cuetools archive, unrar and just run
CUETools.ConsoleRipper.exe. The command
CUETools.ConsoleRipper.exe --help gives the options
Usage : CUERipper.exe <options> -S, --secure secure mode, read each block twice (default); -B, --burst burst (1 pass) mode; -P, --paranoid maximum level of error correction; -D, --drive <letter> use a specific CD drive, e.g. D: ; -O, --offset <samples> use specific drive read offset; -T, --test detect read command; --d8 force D8h read command; --be force BEh read command;
And it tags using musicbrainz, so its automatic and probably correct.
Another option I see mentioned is CDDA2Wav from cdrtools - this seems to be the place to get windows binaries for it. Not tested by me.
You might also be able to run your favourite linux cli ripper in cygwin.
