How can I convert music cd's to a hard drive?

I have over 200 audio cd's that I want to copy to a computer, so I can play them back from the hard drive.   I do not want to copy each one individually, so I was thinking of getting a cd jukebox, such as Sony's CDPCX355.   Is there any way to connect this to my computer so the music files are copied one after the other?

Sounds like a lot of work, but current drives and computers are so fast. You'll blaze through it.  I recomend setting iTunes for MP3, highest quality. It may not be the best quality but it creates files that will be highly universal.

Also, rip them in the order of which are most favorite. Your media software will sort them every which way from there, but at least starting with your faves, you get to listen to them first.

Also, in iTunes, make sure that  you are connected to the internet when  you rip them, because iTunes will go out to the internet, get the Album and track info and populate your iTunes database so that everything is sortable, searchable and defined.
