Music Ripping Software, Who Uses What?

I have just bought Magix MP3 Deluxe so I guess I'll see if that is any good, if not are there any good free(legal) programs on the net?

As i have a high end Pioneer P99rs i needed the best sounding lossless format. WAV 16bit/44khz bitrate is 1411 kbps.(cd quality)
Average file size is between 30 and 60 Mb

I also use itunes.. but I rip to mp3 :>
I changed my ripping format to MP3 but when I try burn a CD the Cd software wont find MP3 files where I saved them. It appears they still in that apple format.
Anyone else encountered this ??

If I want to ensure the best, it's EAC.
Most of my albums I now back up to .wav format because HDD space is relatively cheap and my P99 will play back .wav files from USB/HDD.

I'm quite happy with the Magix software at the moment, I am yet to test all of it's features but it seems quite easy to use and the info balloons were very helpful on the first couple of uses.
I was trying to find a free DVD ripping program but got angry after downloading a couple that wouldn't remove the encryption or wouldn't let you copy a full disc on trial. I ended up buying Magic DVD Ripper which seems good so far but seems very slow, when running Windows 7 you can just copy a DVD(including protected ones) without any additional software but XP refuses to do it, not sure why.

Most H/U won't play WAV though.

It seems really good if you want to save everthing as cda and convert for each connected device and is also great for playlists but for $60 I really do feel ripped off.
