how do cd songs become mp3 songs???

maybe this is a "duh" question.....
but when you don't know the answer...

so........
how do I make mp3's of the songs that are on my CD's???
is there some kind of software that does it? (and is it free ?)

or......
can I just mix CD songs and mp3 songs and burn them (I'm assuming that maybe I can..... but what program or software do I need to do that?).

right now... all I do is burn whole CD's or else mp3's.....
and it seems like I should be doing more than just that

I'd appreciate any help in getting me up to speed (after all.... I'm way too cool to be this clueless LOL).
thanks

Lexy

Yeah, CD-ex is one of the better ones out there- I got it the other night, so expect some uploads from me pretty soon

And it's free

kinda funny....
cuz the first 4 songs that I converted were by No Doubt
(Just A Girl, Hey Baby, It's My Life, Hella Good )

maybe I'll check out your latest suggestion after I get the hang of your original suggestion first (baby steps, y'know )

thanks again

i use iTunes, because even though it makes it's own special file name, i burn cd's using iTunes anyway, so it's ok.

Don't listen to anyone. The best program for that is MUSICMATCH Jukebox. Download that. It's really easy.
