Windows Media Player and MP3's

I want to copy some CDs onto my hard drive as MP3's. MusicMatch is too slow and I don't want to pay to upgrade it (!)

I'd like to use WMP. I've gone into "options", "copy music" and was hoping to change the "copy settings" from .wma to .mp3, but this option is grayed out...

Any ideas how I can achieve this?

Cheers

In WMP you have to buy a codec.

There are plenty of free mp3 rippers out there.

iTunes from Apple is a very good product. Bidg download though 20MB

Thanks for that.

Will give iTunes a go.

Odd thing is I have a few albums already copied from a while back and two of them are in .mp3! Can't work out how that happened, unless older versions of WMP had .mp3-ability for free?!

Thanks again

There is a free codec for WMP. I have it working right now. Can't remember where I got it from but I generally use Google when searching. Required a registry tweak as well, if I recall correctly.
