Software to MP3 my MP3s

  DTM 20:49 29 Sep 2005

I have used Windows Media Player 10 to rip some of my CDs to MP3. I now want to compact the files further without losing the orignal MP3s i.e. originally ripped them at 256 but want them to be less than 192 to fit more on a new player I have.

I have searched the forum but there is so much information !

If you want to keep the original files just copy them to a new folder. Adjust the files in the new folder and the originals will stay intact.

I can find out how to rip a CD using Windows Media Player but could not see a way of further ripping an existing MP3 file? Probably just me looking in the wrong place?

Hi, An exellent program is Cdex, you can reencode your existing Mp3's into smaller Bitrates.

I'm also unaware of what De Marcus™ suggests, & you can use free programs to change bitrate of existing files, but IMO much easier to just re-rip at 192kbps.

If you need even more songs to fit, you could rip at a lower bitrate (than 192) - even as low as 128 - & probably won't notice the difference. G

Thank you for your help. I will give cdex a try.
