Disc to mp3

  tomtojo 12:29 13 Feb 2007

Hi everyone,
I have just bought my wife a mp3 player for valentine's day, better than rose's!!.
she is out at the moment, and I am trying to copy her
cd's to file so I can transfer them to her mp3 player
I am using Nero to do this with mp3pro.
After copying one cd Nero tell's me I have to purchase a mp3pro plugin, as the trial is over.
Is there another way of doing it,

Can the MP3 player not cope with WMA files? Most can but if your unsure post the make/model and we'll be able to tell you.

Hi VideoSentry,
Yes it can,but I know nothing about mp3 player's, so I woud,nt know where to start.
any help, Thanks,

Yes it does,when rippimg with Windows Media Player-click-RIP-click on downward arrow-click FORMAT-choose MP3-here you go

-this is assuming you have the latest WMP installed.

Thank's sikefula,
I will give it a go, when I used Nero
it was very fast, will your way be just as fast?.
Thank's again.

They say that WMA files are better quality for less space so just use WMP and convert to WMA.
Good Luck
