Despite the somewhat confusing interface, an audio CD isn't mounted.

Is grip able to see the tracks on the CD properly?  What's the CDRom
device set to (grip > config > CD)?

That'd be a good trick.  There's no iso to be had from an audio cd. :)

That looks fine.

That looks alright as well.  It should create a 128bit mp3.

If you look at the file info in XMMS, does it seem to recognize the
mp3 properly?  The MPEG Info secrion should say MPEG 1, layer 3.  The
bitrate will be 128 kb/s and the samplerate 44100 Hz.

Have you tried to play the sound juicer created mp3's with any other

Grip is highly configurable.  Sound Juicer is fine if you don't like
to change things much.  And it seems to never get the genre filled in
