In theory this should work - I've extracted directly from an audio cd to
a "generic" audio player before. Do you get any kind of error when you

No error, no message on terminal. The tracks just don't copy.

Today I experimented mounting my shared music with NFS and telling RB
to make the mounted directory the source of its library. It's more
functionnal, but then I must upgrade the library manually when adding
songs, because the library change monitoring option causes a very long
stall at startup (the fact that my network is slow wifi doesn't help
So daap is still a better solution for non local libraries.

I've been experimenting with this, as well. It takes about 25 seconds for me to load a 2100 song DB from an NFS server. I am also working from a wifi connection at 11mbps. Is this slowdown an NFS problem, or can some optimizations be written in Rhythmbox to recognize that songs are referenced through NFS?
