Thanks for the patience you have shown
this newbie. How do I convert WAV files
to MP3 files?
Download CDEx and use the WAV->MP3 feature you see in the program.
Where can I go for CDex?
1st of all, ignore dRDs instructions
Go to CD-RW.ORG or Afterdawn.com software section and download:
-Exact Audio Copy
-LAME MP3 Encoder 3.92
Then switch E.A.C. to use LAME external encoder and from the encoder settings page, choose "high quality". This should enable very good quality settings (known as '--alt-preset standard'). Now you can use EAC to copy CDs to MP3s, to WAVs or to compress WAVs to MP3s.
This page takes things furhter, but worth a look: http://home.wanadoo.nl/m.nuijen/MP3Start.htm
Well, I liked CDex very much. I found it very
user friendly. However, I was not thrilled
with the sound quality. The tracks sounded
almost like a vinyl record skipping. This
evening I will try your idea.
Sound Quality is what matters. User-friendly is only convenient.
I use Audiograbber. But again, it's like how cjmkcm put things across about CDex. Very user friendly but the audio result gets kind of glitchy. Not good..but it works. You can download some of these softwares at kazaa or the other sharing networks you know? Good Luck.

I also have something very similar, perhaps more simplified: http://cd-rw.org/articles/archive/eac_and_lame_setup_guide.cfm
Hey.. newbie too..
I tried the instructions on this page for EAC/Lame MP3 creation and the files only came up to be 7.0 kb in size.
Nothing came out. I gave the song a title and set the default directory but it was a blank MP3.
Duh. I just noticed a colum in EAC that said Copy Protection. I think that's the culprit - maybe. I thought there was a way to get aroud that?

Never seen it, but thanks!
