i have wmplayer and realplayer but when i try to download stuff to my mobile etc they never seem to be compatible, it seems to ask for mp3

download musicmatch (free), it uses mp3 as its default format. just click record on the recorder window and it will rip the music files from CD on to your hard-drive in MP3 format.

Try winamp from click here and get the lite version - it is excellent program for organising and playing mp3 files.

Further, you can right click on one of the mp3 files and choose "open with" and point to, for example, windows media player.

open windows media player then go to tools, options. Make sure MP3 is ticked under the 'file types' tab

That should make them open in windows media player by default

i find winamp ok for a small amount of music files but find the interface clumsy and ugly. musicmatch from click here is a nicer looking, more powerful MP3 database. it has excelent tagging features, quick rip capabilities and much much more!

To rip cd try this click here I find it very easy to use

Apple's iTunes is excellent if you want a 20mb download... great for ripping, orgainising and playing.
