Amarok does not support ripping/importing audio CDs. You may be able to find a plug-in or script to support this; however, I do not know of one off the top of my head nor have I seen one.

I recommend taking a look at Sound Juicer, KAudioCreator or Grip for importing audio CDs. They all are great tools and will do exactly what you need.

See if this works for you. It requires an external package (which is NOT installed by default).

"Insert your CD, then click on "Play Audio CD" in the menu. The File-Browser will come up and show a tree with several folders. For normal ripping, go to the "wav" folder, select some tracks and drag them to the desired destination in a Konqueror window.

For automatic encoding, drag files from the "mp3" or "ogg" folder instead.

CD-ripping requires the "AudioCD KIO-slave" to be installed."
