I've jsut looked at audiograbber and you need to download another file. It only takes a second or so and then you have more control over MP3, including increasing the bitrate to high numbers.

Audiograbber says (amongst other things) the following -

Internal encoders
Audiograbber does not come with any MP3 encoder of its own but it can use some other encoders. It is recommended that you download and install LAME's freeware MP3 encoder dll and use that one with Audiograbber. LAME is fast and gives very good sounding MP3 files.
Download LAME's MP3 dll from click here or click here. Unzip the lame_enc.dll to the same directory as audiograbber.exe and you will have an internal MP3 encoder that goes all the way up to 320 Kbit/s in Audiograbber.

LAME's official homepage is at click here

Go to Audiograbbers website click here and click on the "Guide For Newbies" that will take you through the whole process from start to finish ...alB

I have downloaded the lame_enc.dll file & put it in the audiograbber folder but cannot seem to get it to unzip, using zipcentral, can anyone please talk me through it?

had a look at the site TT said for FreeRip but worried about this;
'This free audio ripper makes a nice choice so long as you're careful during installation. FreeRip comes bundled with adware'

anyone recommend other free sites?

all I want to do is put cd music onto an mp3 player for the kids (they said its easy; wished I'd never said I'd try to do it for them! silly old me)so I need something really easy to understand if poss without having to download other files etc.
