    Is it possible to rip a cd track to .MP3 rather than .WMA using the
    microsoft standard player? If not is there any free software out there that
    you can recommend?

    TIA

    Hi,

    Just start Windows Media Player, click on Tools then select the Rip
    Music tab. About halfway down you will see the Format, just open the pull
    down and select MP3 rather than WMA.

    cheers

    In order to avoid the Microsoft DRM nightmare that can result from
    WMP pissing into the data stream, use CDex or one of the other free
    rippers - CDex can be had from http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdexos/
