Rip songs to folder
You can specify the folder where you want your freshly ripped songs to go.  Depending on the other options you have selected, the software may create sub-folders by the artist's name.  To change the folder, click "Change" and select a new folder.  (Note: you may want to change your 'rip folder' to be on your largest hard drive.)

Store songs in folder with artist's name
DJ Twist & Burn will create a sub folder with artist's name and put all ripped tracks within this folder.  The default location is "My Music" under your My Documents folder.

Use artist in song's file name
This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith - My Silly Dog.mp3".  The artist is "Bubba Smith" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

Use album in song's file name
This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith - Whole Lot Of Fish - My Silly Dog.mp3" or "Whole Lot Of Fish - My Silly Dog.mp3" depending on your other options.  The artist is "Bubba Smith", the album is "Whole Lot Of Fish" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

Use track number in song's file name
This option will cause the software to create the ripped file to be called something like "Bubba Smith - Whole Lot Of Fish - 1. My Silly Dog.mp3".  The artist is "Bubba Smith", the album is "Whole Lot Of Fish" and the track is "My Silly Dog"

Play sound when done ripping
When the rip finishes, this option will play a sound.  This is helpful if you are out of the room and want to know when the rip is done!  There really isn't much more to say about this one. J 

Rip Speed
This allows you to set the speed of the rip.  The default is "Max" which is the maximum speed possible for your CD drive.  You may choose a slower speed for more accurate rips.

Jitter Correction
Drinking too much coffee?  This feature will help you calm down!  J  Seriously, some CD drives cannot seek or move to an exact time offset on the CD and, thus, it is possible to have errors when copying a track.  By default, DJ Twist & Burn automatically detects whether or not it needs jitter correction.

If needed - This is the default.
No  - Do not use jitter correction.  (Faster, possible inaccurate rips.)
Yes - Use jitter correction. (Slower, more accurate rips.)


Error Handling During Rips
It is possible to have a rip error if a track especially if the CD is dirty or scratched.   By default, DJ Twist & Burn will attempt to re-read the erroneous track info 10 times.  The other options are:

Ignore Them - Ignore errors and rip as if nothing happened. J
Retry - This will retry reading the erroneous area for the given # of times.
Abort - This option will halt the rip if an error occurs.

Rip files to (format)
This allows you to set the file format in which your freshly ripped files are created.
Temporary Wave files - This option is for those that simply want to copy tracks for burning CDs.  These files will not be added to your Music Library.  (The temporary WAV files are stored in your temp folder and will have the .tmp extension.)
Store in format- This option is the default and will cause the ripped songs to be added to your Music Library.  In addition, you can choose the file format to rip to.
o MP3 - The default format.  (MP3s are compressed to about 10 times smaller than WAV files for a similar quality)
o WAV - Uncompressed audio format.  (Ripping will be much faster because there is no compression necessary.  However, the file size will be around 40MB per song!)
o WMA - This is Microsoft's format and is generally smaller than MP3s, although not as supported.  Microsoft claims it is the size of an equivalent MP3.
o OGG - A royalty and patent free format.  Sound quality is great even at low bit rates!  (Encoding to OGG is slow, but the quality is great!)
o Settings - This will allow you to adjust more settings for the format you are ripping to, including the tag type.
