Can anyone recommend a AudioCD to .mp3 File Ripper?

iTunes can do it very easily, though for quality you probably want Exact Audio Copy.

god damn it, i've got ImTOO WMA to MP3 converter and i'm trying to convert AAC audio to MP3 but it doesnt really work. Some tracks it works 100%, but some are cut of 60-70% the way through.

Does anyone know of a good freeware that will convert AAC -> MP3 correctly?

http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm though its mp3 encoder is a trial version however I think if you have Nero or some mp3 burning software the mp3 encoder might still work once the trial is up.

thanks aerospace_eng, but that s/ware doesnt accept .aac?

do u know of anything else that will convert to mp3 (from aac?)

Also, the files are coloured blue (i.e the filenames)

Why is that?

Yes it does accept aac. You need to download the codec for it. It doesn't come installed with the software. http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central.htm I'm wondering if the blue file names are files that have been converted by your other program or something.

I converted all the .aac files to .mp3 and what is happening is that the some of the converted mp3s are cutting off before the end of the track.

I know this because when i open the .aac (original file) in RealPlayer it plays to the end fine.

I am wondering if the files have 'DRM' protection on them as some of the 'protected' files that i have ripped with WMP into .wma are also blue in colour.

So is it the case if there is DRM file protection on the file then it cannot be converted into another format?

just do a search for "k lite mega codec pack" that'll give you the codecs needed to rip mp3s using windows media player.

But doesn't iTunes use an mpeg4 format, not an mp3?

You can make it do AAC, MP3, WAV, Apple Lossless, etc.
