Can anyone tell me how to change audio cds from wma to mp3 so I can play on an mp3 player please.

I use xp/nero

You can use Nero Wave Editor, however, you have only 30 free conversions. Download Apple iTunes for unlimited 192kbps MP3 conversions.

Just open a file, right click and select CONVERT TO MP3

Thanks for your replies, 4 different sites so i guess it will be pot luck for me but i suppose they are similar.

Am I right in saying that I burn a cd to my HDD, then if I have one of these converter progs installed,I convert my WMA file to mp3 and download it to my mp3 player.

If I have this wrong, can you correct me but please in a step x step fashion.

Can anyone also tell me how many cds I could save to an mp3 player both in wma and mp3 formats.

If you have a CD use CD-Ex and it will automatically put it into a mp3 format if you tell it to and at what quality you want, i use it and it is very simple quick and free

A cd album at medium/good quality (128bit rate) takes up roughly 50mb and so it depends on size of mp3 play how many you have, not sure on wma files

What is cd-ex
If my cd is decent quality as you say,and the mp3 player I buy is 128mb, that means I can only fit on about 2.5 cd's?
How much does a converter prog(cd-ex?)compress it?

What is 128 bit rate?

CDEX is one of the best out there, it will change your CD's into MP3 FILES..mind you 128mb is not a lot, MP3 players are now between 20 and 40 GB, the iRiver one i have holds about fourteen thousand tracks.............

i assume I can Google CDEX.
What is the iRiver you mention.
At present, I have 4 cds on my HDD,24mb/40mb/45mb/25mb. so as an example, what size would they be in mp3 format.

I have found/dowloaded/installed cdex.

I have just inserted audio cd in cd-rom drive and tried one track but I cant see where it has been saved to.

Also,how do I change the tracks already on hdd.

Sorry to be such a dummy.
