4 Reasons Why You Should Back up Your CDs on Music Files

There are many different reasons due to which you should convert your music library from CDs to a digital file-based one. Some of them include the following:

1.      Faster Search Times

If you have a really large CD collection going into the thousands, it will be all but impossible to compartmentalize it. Sometimes, lumping all of your CDs together means that it can take hours before you are able to find the track that you want. 

If your collection consists of anything and everything from classical music to jazz to rock and roll without any order, you can forget about finding that one CD you want so badly.

However, converting your WAV CD collection to a FLAC based one will ensure that most (if not all) of your tracks will have metadata information. This will help you to categorize the tracks based on the performers, the albums and even the genre. Once you have this information, you can create your very own catalog and select any track at leisure.

2.      It Will Help Free up Your Storage Space

The more the number of CDs in your collection, the more cluttered your room and storage areas. Now you can easily get rid of all those large and ungainly piles of CDs once and for all. The miracle of miniaturization makes it possible to transfer even huge amounts of data into a single memory stick that you can use with your smartphone or car audio system. This way, you will be able to enjoy your music whenever you want, wherever you want.

3.      It Will Keep Your Collection Safe and Handy

A digital music library is immune to dust, fingerprints, smudge marks or scratches which means that you won’t have to worry that your player might not be able to play your beat-up old CD. Moreover, there is no need to worry about losing any part of your precious music collection. You can even create a set of back-up copies or upload your whole collection on the cloud. This way you won’t ever have to lose your music.

4.      Conversion Is a Hassle-Free Exercise

Most top-end professional CD ripping outfits can do the job within 72 hours, and many of them offer pick and drop services as well. All you have to do is to set an appointment and they will come over and pick up your CDs and return them to you safe and sound, along with the storage drive of your brand new digital music library. Best of all, you won’t have to buy anything at all, since they also provide memory sticks, cards, and hard drives.
