Mp3's on OS 8
I have an older G3 with OS 8 and 2.9GB of free memory. I wired the CPU to my stereo and I wanted to use it for music storage. I was wondering what the best CD ripper and mp3 manager would be for this old of an OS. If there is a way to upgrade my OS for free, I'd like to know that also. Thanks.

Hi! Welcome to the MacNN Boards!!! :D

Your best bet is searching on www.versiontracker.com under the "Mac OS" section. I'm not 100% positive that any programs will do what you want on such an old OS, however they might have something...good luck! :)

Everything above 7.5.X is still not vintage, so Apple isn´t willing to give it away for free. If ebay is not an option you´re stuck with OS 8.

Thanks! I'll try what you've suggested.

Is the old machine running OS 8 your only machine. If it is then you are stuck with older rippers and you won't get the rippers with the new codec (mp3 crusher or something, new is better I guess) But if you had a new machine then I would rip and then transfer.

But back before iTunes I use to use Audio Catalyst which was nice, did your standard rip and a sort in folders. There should be a host of free players Vamp always a fun one. WinAmp, maybe

But do check the versiontracker.com alway the best source of info
