How to question

Is there some way to grab a song from a CD and convert it into an MP3?

I allways used "AudioCatalyst". Rips from CD and Converts to MP3 in one step. Most CD-RWs come with something that will do this for you in the software bundle so look around and see if you have anything installed that will do it. (althought the TDK Software I got was awfull! It could do it! )

Jules

The software/codec you use will to some degree dictate the quality of the MP3's that you will rip.

Some people want to rip at 360Kbps (which I dont see the need for) while others will be happy to rip at 128Kbps.
If you wish to rip towards the lower end of the scale the follow the web site below and you can grab the required codecs etc to allow you to use the Windows Media Player to rip your CD's to MP3 for you.

PS: Remember that the higher the quality (ie the Kbps) the larger the mp3 file.

Thumbs up

I've been a registered user of MusicMatch Jukebox Plus for a while too Jules, but you might wanna consider Audio MP3 Converter v3.0 as an alternative It's also a Shareware proggie (US$19.95 or US$29.95 for 2 Licenses), but it covers just about every format known to man (or woman for that matter ), and... as it's name suggests... it's primary role is converting audio from one format to another.

Amongst the many other tricks it has up its sleeve... it supports converting MP3 to WAV, and WAV to MP3, so it could be just what/all you need
