Computer: For the New User - Converting CD's into MP3

If you need to convert files to MP3, you can use either Windows Media Player or Applie iTunes.

For WMP:
Right-click along the top of the window.
Select Tools.
Then Options.
Click the Rip Music tab.
Choose MP3 as the format.

For iTunes (on a Mac)
Under the drop-down menu labeled iTunes, selct Preferences.
Then selct the icon for Importing.
In the drop-down menu for Import Using, select the MP3 Encoder, then click OK.

Both programs work equally well and allow you to select a bit rate of up to 320Kbps. If you want to take up less space on your hard drive, opt for a lower bit rate; use a higher bit rate if sound quality is more important to you.
