Rip talking books to mp3 files?


Likes # 0

Which is the best way to rip talking books, I would like to rip them and then save them in a folder ie= cd1,cd2 etc to transfer to different mp3 players so to save as a mp3. and keep them on a usb drive to listen again some time Iv'e tried itunes windows media player but still get it wrong have saved them as mp3 then when I try to move them to another pc they are not recognised as they end up as wav files and not mp3 and I can't transfer. Theres lots of software out there its just trying to get the right one for my needs tried googleing and tried some but still confused.

Talking books is something I have been trying for someone recently . The downloads have all been MP3 files anyway (or MP3 was an option together with Ipod/Itunes and so on) as here,

Books should be free

so I am a little puzzled with your description.

Any Windows PC should recognise MP3 WAV WMA etc without any additional software.

If your ripping from CD then the files are CDDA you need to select MP3 from the media player's riping menu.

in Itunes - Advanced menu - there is an item "convert selection to mp3"
