    Hi, I have recently had my car pinched and a load of cds (multichanger)

    So now I have the Sony MP70 that is an in car MP3 player.

    Been new to this home backing lark (have not even got a burner yet) and not wishing to download (have not got broadband and am impatient and would rather spend 8 quid on the proper album)

    How is easy is it to back my cds on to MP3 format??

    I know not allowed to talk about piracy, but this is backing up my own stuff!

    Mods, if you feel the need to delete/move thats OK.


    Cheers

    Jonathan

    You are allowed to transfer the music from your own CD to another media that you need for personal use.

    You'll need a PC with Windows XP (or an older version). Once you inser the CD into the CD-ROM windows will start a player called Windows Media Player program automatically. If you are connected to the Internet the player will get the name of the album, artist and the tracks. There is button on te screen that says: Rip to Library. Click on it!

    You are done.

    Real Player does this too in much the same way.

    As for connecting to the internet, I insert the first CD and then cancelled the "connect to internet" pop up box. I then cancelled the MP3 copy (as it didn't have the track titles

    I then insterted the rest of my CDs but didn't rip them and still not connected to the internet. When done I connected to the internet and Real Player then connects to cddb and downloads all the track info for the cds I've instered. Then disconnect from the internet.

    Then loaded all the CDs in again but this time it had the track info

    Saves loads of time online as it does a batch in only a couple of mins.

    If you want to do a good job of it, use LAME and EAC. Certainly harder than the method given above, but the results should be a lot better.
