    Recording on the HD

    Has anyone figured out a way to record a lot of stuff on the HD at a faster speed or through a USB type of transfer? I want to put some books on disk on it but not a normal speeds.
    Thanks

    Re: Recording on the HD

    When you "record" a CD to your HDD you're essentially doing two separate things, converting tracks to MP3 format (ripping) and uploading them to the HDD. You can rip CD tracks on a computer and put them onto a thumbdrive first. By doing this you eliminate the most time intensive process, the ripping. Now, you'll only be uploading tracks to the HDD, which is relatively quick. Overall, you're still spending the same amount of time for the entire process, just less time in the car. There is another advantage to using a computer to rip tracks instead of your car. The car rips at 320 Kbps. This produces premium sounding MP3s, which you'll want for music. However, you don't need that high a quality rip for vocal tracks (e.g. audio books). Therefore, you can rip at a lower bitrate for smaller file size and faster transfer.

    Re: Recording on the HD

    I'm not sure I am following you. When I buy a CD book on my computer it comes as a down load and takes about three minutes for the whole book. If I want to convert that data to CD's it takes a little longer but not real time by any means. Is there any way to use the computer data directly to the HD and end up with the same results without writing to CD's? The only input device that I am aware of is the Iphone plug in the center box. Thanks

    When you download the book file from the vendor what is it's format? MP3, etc.? If it's a format that the Caddy recognizes you could just copy the file to a thumb drive, plug the thumb drive into the USB port of the SRX, then copy from the USB to your HD. No ripping is needed in this case.

    Ripping is only required when you have a CD source that needs to be read and saved in a file format on the computer or SRX hard drive. If you already have the book as a file AND the file is a format recognized by the SRX, then you can just copy it.

    Thanks Steve I'll give it a try. I think the data is MP3.
