Fast CD ripping? Answered

I have a gazillion CDs I need to upload to my computer and on to the iPod. Is there a faster way to do this than import into itunes one at a time?

There are other CD ripper programs, but none that I've seen that will work with more than one CD at a time. It's a lot of work, a lot of CD changing, a lot of ID3 tag tweaking. Even if you can use more than one CD drive at a time, it's still a lot of work. You could rig something up on Linux with as many CD-ROM drives as your case will fit (probably $20 each), cdparanoia, cddb and the Lame MP3 encoder. If you can't find a commercial product to rip many CDs at a time, this will be your best bet.
