Creating MP3s from Audio CDs

An audio cd rips through the white background of the page, creating a large tear.

At some point almost all computer owners desire to turn their CD collection into computer files. Whether they wish to carry their collection on their laptop, listen to music at work without changing CDs or trade music with friends (legally, of course), there is an almost universal desire among computer users to copy their CDs to their hard drive.

MP3 files are an ideal choice for storing music for most people and situations. They have good to excellent sound quality. The files are small. And, most importantly, they are compatible with just about every computer and device capable of playing digital music files, from iPods to Palm Pilots, most new DVD players, even cell phones and digital cameras.
