Hi

I got an mp3 player for Christmas and have no idea how to get my cds on to it. I have tried free downloads from amazon and managed to get them on it. Do i need a programme to convert the songs on the cd to mp3 format and if so are there any easy programmes out there to help me do this? Free ones if possible.

Thanks

Sharon

First, you have to copy (rip) the songs from the CD, to your harddrive.
From there, you can transfer them to your mp3 player.
Just make sure to rip them to a format (MP3, WAV, OGG, etc.) that is compatible with your mp3 player.

A couple of free ripping programs:
CDex
DeepRipper

You're welcome, Sharon.
Were you able to get it figured out?
Are you listening to your CD's on your new player? :thumbsup:

I loved Audiograbber that was the first ripper I ever used (back in like 98) it was simple to operate and had Xing encoding embedded (i think thats the right term) into the program it made ripping straight to a MP3 possible (back then that was hard to find). But the one in the new WMP is good it allows me to save to folders named after the artist and album title (when you have almost 300 CDs on your computer thats a good thing). Haven't any of audiograbbers newer releases since 2.0 but WMP came free w/ the computer so thats what I've been using

err that sounds very odd as there should be no restrictions on CDex at all as it is freeware. You might have something amiss in your setings. I have used it a bit in the past and do not remember any problems.
