Greetings fellow Deadheads!
My name is Hunter and I could use your help, I am a fanatical Deadhead. They are truly a band beyond description.
Born in '90, I never had a chance to see Jerry, the recordings allow me to enjoy 30 years of what The Grateful Dead gave us.
I am in need of advice/guidance/suggestions regarding how to upload my entire GDCD collection to a CPU.
In short, I have not kept up with technology very much for over a decade, I am aware of the rudimentary basics.
I stopped keeping up when the iPhone launched (2006), around the same time when laptops always had CD drives built in.
I would like to upload my entire GDCD collection to a computer, when I say entire, it is literally every *official* Grateful Dead CD release in the discography to the best of my knowledge. The collection is massive and also includes JGB, LM, Garcia/Grisman, Garcia/Wales, Garcia/Saunders, Old & In The Way, etc. releases as well. At this point, I have lost count of how many discs there are, however this is specifically a GD and associated discs only collection - and is also all I listen to 99.99% of the time. The Grateful Dead is a huge passion of mine, listening to their various recordings is something I very much love.
For unreleased shows, I stream Archive from my computer. I would like to obtain unreleased shows but plan to start this project before figuring that one out.
I have been using CD players (An arsenal of Walkmans at work or on the go, a home entertainment system at home, and a 6 slot CD cartridge integrated into the stereo system when in the car) to enjoy the discs for some time now. After awhile, carrying around box sets (aside from Europe '72), the fragile plastic Dick's Picks, a mint Dave's Vol. 1, or any highly coveted Bonus Disc becomes very laborious, especially while successfully keeping not only the discs but the cases in museum like quality. I would like to upload everything to a computer, back it up on multiple external harddrives (in case of data corruption/fire/who knows), and find a way to be able to enjoy/access the whole collection without psychically having it all on me.
When I was in HS I had an iPod and used iTunes, don't own one anymore and no longer use iTunes - my current laptop and home PC do not have a built in CD drives (both are Windows 10 OS) - I am going to purchase a quality external CD drive to transfer the discs to my computer but from there I am unsure of what program I should use to enjoy the music in a digital capacity (I would like the program to be able to identify the discs upon transfer, and hopefully allow me to create playlists as well, similar to how iTunes worked when I used it back in 2005 with an iPod), the ideal program would be strictly for the use of uploading the discs with the ability to play them back after transferred, streaming programs like Pandora/Spotify are unwanted. I was looking for suggestions on how to enjoy the music once it has been transferred to the computer (should I just use the newest version of iTunes or is there something better now??) - I do not own a smartphone, I could if I needed to, I would prefer buying another laptop and using the current laptop as my new walkman. As for tunes in the car, the laptop and car have Bluetooth, if the Bluetooth connection happens to be choppy while driving and fails, I had an AUX port professionally built into the Radio system and can use a 2 way AUX cord to connect the Radio to the laptop. I am sure a smartphone would be easier but I always carry my laptop around with me and I am still not ready to enter the 'phone zone' with a 'smartphone'. Call me old fashion.
Obviously this isn't a Grateful Dead predicament however seeing as this very well cared for (and most cherished) collection is at stake here I would value any deadheads opinion regarding this over a tech salesperson at a store.
If you are willing to offer advice I would be exceptionally Grateful to say the least. Thank you for reading!!
