novice asks: can I adjust 'sudio input' (?) when ripping cds

Real novice here needs help!!

Learning all I can about ripping my cd collection. I've about decided on FLAC format. Now . . some of my old cd's were bought via one of those music clubs (can't even remember the name now) and I know that when I play a 'club' cd and a store cd on my stereo, the 'club' cd is always quieter - which is annoying as #$% 'cuz - well - I have to keep playing w/ the volume on my stereo.

So . . . when ripping my cd collection - and perhaps more importantly - when playing my cds via my computer to my stereo (help w/ that appreciated also - haven't gotten that far in my research) - how can I level the input (?) of the sound so that all the music plays at the same volume? does this make sense?

Thanks in advance


btw: desktop pc Win 7 haven't bought/downloaded any software yet (e.g. flac)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
