I'd probably just invest in a couple of 2 gig HDs and rip them all. Who wants to keep physical media around? This pertains more to vinyl than any other form of media, but I know for many, there's something about having the tangible item there. You can make a connection to the drive to gain material possessions, but there's a more deeply rooted aspect behind this mindset. To an extent, I'm the same way with DVDs. I could easily put everything on some external hard drives and clear up a lot of space. But there's something to be said for picking up the physical item and, in many cases, going through any bonus reading material included. Of course, that's just one theory. I can't even say it applies to me across the board, since I have no real desire to do this with CDs, despite the sound quality selling point of the CD vs. an MP3 and the inclusion of liner notes.
