Converting CDs to MP3

  peter t. 11:08 08 Dec 2005

Iam trying to convert some of my music into MP3 format,I have tried to use Windows Media but it tells me I hav'nt got an MP3 encoder ? Is there anything free that I can use instead.
I'm using XP/sp2.
I would also like to creat my own ringtones from my music ?

If you need a music convertor (as against a ripper) try dBpowerAMP Music Converter (dMC) click here. It's one of the best I've used - easy to use & versatile (it can rip, batch convert, record, create/edit ID tags, add DSP effects & has the freedb feature).

Initially it's free (for 30 days), then you'll need to pay a small amount (about £8/US$14) to retain some of it's features when they expire, like the MP3 encoder licence & 'Power Pack'.

Audacity click here, is completely free & will convert to MP3. The new beta version apparently supports batch conversion (see the 'Other features' at click here). Don't forget to install the free MP3 Lame encoder click here. Audacity needs a bit of 'learning' so make sure to check out the FAQs click here & Help pages click here.

The free AudioGrabber is s ripper with some added features click here. G
