Ripping mp3s  
Does anyone know of a good free program for windows to rip mp3s from CDs? I thought i could use Ahead Nero except despite the fact i paid to register it they want me to pay more to enable mp3 encoding =P

And in other news, today is casual friday! Yay! It feels kind of pathetic that i;m so excited about it, kind of like i've sold out to the man or soemthing. What gives them the right to tell me that i can only wear jeans on friday? Oh yeah, the fact that they're holding my paycheck hostage =P

Works great, you can use any encoder you want with it (just drop the encoder in the main Audiograbber directory to use it as an internal encoder).

You're welcome. I've been using AudioGrabber since it was shareware and always been pleased with it.

FreeRip is a handy program I've used...

Hmmm, i may take a look at that later, but i've already intalled AudioGrabber at work, since that was the only response i'd gotten before i left, and it seems to work pretty well. Thanks though :)

On this machine (my old WinNT one at work), I've run a combination of "CD Copier" which simply bit-copies sound tracks off a CD into files, and "WAV to MP3 Encoder", which does what it says. But that's just what I found in a very quick search years ago... I'm sure there's much better stuff out there that combines these steps. In fact, that's probably what the other two comments suggested, so why am I even writing this?

"only wear jeans"? Literally? I don't even own any jeans.

You do too, but only coincidentally. I think there's an old pair of mine floating around somewhere, and they probably fit you.

But that's beside the point. Man, I wish I could wear jeans to work.

Well yes, but we've already established that you're strange ;)

And yes, you should try out the other suggestions that were posted earlier :) AudioGrabber at least can rip straight from the CD to mp3, and has a cute little GUI interface with lots of colors as well :)
