I would like to convert audio files to mp3. Can I do this with any of the media players that I have, or do I need to purchase a specific program? I currently have the latest versions of Windows Media Play, Real Player, and Winamp. Please help.

Thanks

You will need a specific program, but thankfully they are free :) CDEx is one that will convert WAV to MP3. If you want to convert others, check out www.download.com

Thanks for your quick response. Does CDEx convert any file downloaded with any media player?

Thanks Again.

What do you mean by 'file downloaded by any media player'?

I have download music files utilizing Real Player and Rhapsody and would like to convert the files so that I can place them on my SD Card.

OK. I take it you have a MP3 player then?

I have not seen personally a converter for Real files to MP3. As for rhapsody, what file extension do they go under as?

The only reason I didn't mention it because of Ohheck's last sentence... Its a lot of work to get them into MP3s. Most CDs can hold on average 14 songs. If you have more than that.... it will take a while :)

RAX files are protected, so the first step has to be burning them to an audio disk from what I found. I think this topic is borderline on being a legal topic here, FYI. :rolleyes:
