Default I can't burn an MP3 CD.....

I took a lot of CD'* and put them on iTunes because I want to make an MP3 CD. When I go to my iTunes burning preferences it says I can't make an MP3 CD. I tried Roxio and it said that the files I have aren't MP3 files. I don't knnow much about computers. How can I make these MPEG files MP3s?

I think you ripped them wrong, an MPEG is generally a video clip. Try again and look through the settings making sure that the software you are using is writing the output files as .mp3

by default iTunes rips cd'* in a protected file format known as .AAC, or .mp4. You can only burn these as an audio cd, not MP3. These files also cannot be converted once created as .AAC.

Oh. Well that sucks. Does anyone use a ripper? What is a good one?

For the record, just burning .mp3 files onto a typical data CD should work perfectly fine for MP3-CD players. You won't have any playlist files, but my MP3-CD walkman doesn't handle those, so data CD'* are the way to go for me.

And MusicMatch is much better? Whatever. MMJB is a buggy hunk of ****. If you want to use a decent ripper, either change the preferences in iTunes to rip to MP3 or use a dedicated program like AudioGrabber. MusicMatch is junk, Period.

Care to give any real explaination for why iTunes sucking.. aside from you most likely being a hardcore PC user and iTunes is an Apple product?

I've never had any problems with my Rio Music Manager but I think the only way you can get that is with a Rio MP3 player (which I love and would recommend...but that'* off topic).
