I use a programme called WISMP3 (very good)which I got free a long time ago from a cover disk on magazine PC Utilities.

Don't know whether it is still free or not though. Try typing WIS into google and see what you get. If I can find the disc I could do you a copy?

There are loads and loads of MP3 converters available. Just enter MP3 converter into Google and you will be deluged!!.

A point about writing MP3 files with Nero. Write them as data files NOT audio. Nero converts MP3 back to WAV if you use audio writing.

Can't find the disc but found the Mag. PC Utilities Issue 5. No date on the Mag. but WISMP3 is listed as "Freeware".

Excellent for converting music CDs to MP3. It even checks web sites to get track names etc so that MP3 files are appropriately named.

Actually,although I rarely use it for conversion,Nero does rip from CD to a large variety of file formats,and also does convert files already on your HDD[accessed via The Extras/File Encoding... Tab].

I've downloaded dBPower amp and works a treat.

Im currently rippin all my cds now which is gonna take me all day at the least but nevermind ive got nothin else to do. lol

Leo49 u can convert with nero but have to buy a plug in.

Cheers stef
