I think at a point they did rip as mp3s, but you have to pay royalities to use the MP3 codec. So windows created their own, .wma file extension. And seems that is the only option to rip to.

If you wanna try, use LAME.

But I currently use iTunes as my music player, and it has a free MP3 encoder built in.

You can use Exact Audio Copy and LAME in an effective combo that can extract some severely damaged CDs.

Or you can use CDex, which is easier to setup and use, IMO.

Both setups are completely free.

I used to use Cdex but have recently switched to EAC and LAME and I couldn't be happier.

Nonetheless, you could post simple things like the OS you are using ... this really helps us help you. :)

Also, all of your devices are listed in your Control Panel ... it is worth finding where ... you'll learn while digging.

I tried using EAC and LAME recently (at the suggestions of the newest issue of Maximum PC no less), and it caused my PC to reboot everytime I ran the .exe file. After than Winamp would no longer run. I had to uninstall and reinstall it.

Strange...my PC works just fine otherwise.

Just for clarity, the pc in question is:
Intel P4 2.8 Ghz
1GB RAM
Asus p4-533X mobo (i might have the numbers a little off)
Win XP Pro

I think I'll try CD-ex instead. I tried iTunes, but only saw AAC encoding (I didn't look that hard).

Don't remember...I've since deleted the files, but judging by the dates, I'd guess it was Exact Audio Copy V0.95 prebeta 5

I use that version, and I've never had a problem with it. In fact, it perfectly ripped a CD that had a speck of the reflective material gone. It is a tiny speck but a speck nonetheless.

There is actually a very simple registry hack to enable ripping mp3's with WMP9, although like the people above stated, its probably wiser to use a better quality one.
Here is the text in a *.REG file:

Quote:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Settings\MP3Encoding]
"LowRate"=dword:00017700
"MediumRate"=dword:0001f400
"HighRate"=dword:0002ee00


Copy that text into "MP3RegHack.reg" using notepad and run it. (dont worry, i tested this on my own machine and its safe and it works)
