You'll be able to save the files in WMA format using Media Player, and then you'll need to buy some software to convert the files when they're on your PC. There are free programmes, or those that offer free trials if you search though.

Be careful not to infringe on anyone's copyright!

If you use Nero 6 as your CD burning software you can install a plug in (MP3PRO) which will allow you to rip audio tracks and convert to MP3 (copyright permitting). I use this a lot and find it excellent. If you are interested further post back and I can walk you through it.

This was a commercial offering initially and if you wanted it you had to buy it, and I did, but it's free now see click here NOTE: It copies the audio digitally-not through the soundcard so reproduction is v good -- sound even ('nuther lost joke?).

I've used it since Adam was a lad and have never tried anything else so I can't offer comparisons.

It's fairly certain that something else is just as good though.
