Free {MP3,FLAC,AAC,...} ripping software

Found via Asbørn's comment on the The Blank Spot's (Norwegian) article about the FLAC lossless file compression codec:

dBpowerAMP Music Converter - a free AudioGrabber replacement. Downloaded. Installed. To be tested.

dBpowerAMP is one of the best audio converters I have used. Itís so simple and yet very powerful with support of many codecís. A right-click conversion interface!

With the evergrowing harddrive size today, I don't understand why people don't use lossless compression more. With FLAC you can shave off, what, about 40% of the original? A Mp3 with ~256Kbps isn't that must smaller anyway...

I still code my MP3s max @ 192Kbps. One of the reasons is that they fit better into my mp3 player. Then again - its a 20 gig hard disk player but still... it'll run out some day...

It'll get interesting when more and more people (and players) start using/supporting higher quality lossless audio. What I want to know is this: where do you think Ogg Vorbis will fall into place?

as far as I can see, none of the major portable players support Ogg Vorbis (iPod, Creative etc) - that's a major factor for me when determining what format to rip my music into...

Rio Karma is a 20gb portable player that supports MP3, WMA, FLAC, and Ogg Vorbis music files. It's not as delicate as some of the recent players though.
