Copying from AudioCD to Finder

Is there a way to copy AudioCD files to the finder? The main purpose is to collect songs from different discs to burn CD mixes. I know I could just have the burner request every disc as needed, but that can become a headache rather quickly, and I don't trust disc-swapping so much. A friend said something about a "CD Ripper", but I couldn't find anything on that.

Any help is appreciated.

Adaptec' Toast Audio Extractor that comes with Toast does the trick.

I'm not sure, but won't Quicktime work? That's what I use when I make mp3's from my CD's.

Well, the toast extracter worked. Thanks. I guess I should've looked into that. Tho' it seems it puts it through some conversion process, which probably takes just as long as SoundJam takes to convert to AIFF. *shrug* No big deal, really. Both seemed to work well. Thanks.

As to QuickTime... I don't have Pro, and the player doesn't seem to have that featre. Hmm.

It takes just as long because the two programs are doing exactly the same thing: extracting the file from CD and putting it on your hard drive. SoundJam's wording is misleading when it comes to the AIFF "rip." There's no real encoding going on in this process, unless you later decide to convert to MP3.
