Are there some packages I should install to have those cd's

Yes it is way off topic.
You want to take all your Audio CDs and make them into MP3 files, yes?
I have Ubuntu 12.04. I have installed Ripper X, Asunder CD Ripper, and a few others.
I would see what rippers are available with your Linux distro and try a few. I have not used a
Linux one in a few years, since I ripped all my CDs years ago and keep the MP3 file on my massive
To be honest, I do not know which one does the "stars" option you wish.
As for CD's being "recognized", that is a different issue. Are you saying that your Linux system
is not able to play audio CDs? That sounds like a hardware problem, since every distro of Linux I
have used include the needed drivers and packages for reading audio CDs.
Are you saying that you place your CD in the drive and open the audio package and the CD and song
information are not found and displayed? That is a problem with the database being used to look
up the CD info online. For playing your CDs on Linux and Windows, try VLC. They have a really
good system and they have access to a service that will look your CDinfo up online. To be honest,
if you run Windows Vista, VLC is the preferred package since it included all of the codexoption
you would need that Vista does not provide. But, if you have a CD that is not part of a large
publishing house, it may not get included in the online database. That is just life of a small run
CD by obscure artists.
So try Asunder CD Ripper and VLC player.
I use VLC media player on all my systems as a default install. Linux and Windows [XP through Win7]
