View Full Version : Converting to mp3's

12-13-2005, 09:05 PM
I have a bunch of music on my computer and I just got a dvd burner so I could convert the music to mp3 form and burn the mp3's onto disc (because it hold more). My question is...what kind of program do I need to change my music files into mp3's? A friend directed me to download.com (which i'm looking at now) to find a program but I am totally lost. Thanks in advance.

Its annoying to setup, but its friggin easy once it is setup.

HONESTLY tho, for ease of use, you need to get itunes. It imports to mp3 automagically and it keeps your mp3 folder organized for you and if it recognizes your burner, burning mp3 and audio cds is built in

I'll cast my vote with Mast for iTunes here, but in my case, it was already included in the Mac OS on the old Mac minitower I own, so that's how I ended up using iTunes.

what format is the music in right now?

there are many free programs that 'rip' or convert the music.
if you search google "wav to mp3" you will get many, many programs to convert.
to find any program or information in general, i suggest a search engine like google.

if you store the mp3's on CD in data file format some cd players will recognize the mp3's. im assuming this is what you want. windows will copy by itself without other programs. some new car cd players also recognize mp3 cds. (700MB / 4 MB per song = 175 songs)
windows media player which comes with windows can burn mp3 into normal audio CD's i believe.
