If you are looking for the best possible sound quality, you should use EAC (exact Audio Copy) and the LAME codec. It is a bit more complicated to use then a more user friendly program though.
Well, I got that dbpoweramp thingy and it's quite easy to use, I liek it What bit rate is adviced to use for the tracks to still sound good? Obvioulsy the higher the better, but then the files are bigger, so I'm looking for the lowest acceptable line
Nina, may I ask what you are looking to do with these mp3s? Backups for Cds, putting them on a small flash based player, putting them on a lrager player, whatever. There are many ways to do this and each solution is right for a different person.
Hangon.. that changes everything. 4 or 5 CDs contain what, 100 songs at max? Most MP3s of decent quality are around 6-7 MB at most... so why do you want to reduce the size of the files? You can probably keep them at CD quality and fit them all on a blank comfortably
