Good morning Pushpanatha,

iTunes works very well and very quickly for me. Choose bit rate. Import CD as MP3, drag songs from iTunes directory to the desktop. Done.

Regards,

Ty Ford

Pusha,

Start iTunes. Set the mp3 import rate in preferences. Put CD in drive. When iTunes asks if you want to import the tracks say yes. Find cuts in iTunes directory. Drag to desktop. Import where ever you want.

I'm not iTunes tech support. Keep at it. You'll get it.

Regards,

Ty Ford

There are scores of CD rippers available, many of them free. Google will reveal way more than you can use.

MP3 is not a recommended format for production as it is a lossy format. It is a shame to take a perfectly find uncompressed CD track, compress it into MP3, loose a significant part of the content and then un-compress it back into the timeline. Completely avoidable.

Simply rip the CD track to WAV and avoid the MP3 compression.

When I did a Google search for: CD ripper it returned over 8.5 million hits, including many excellent candidates right on the first page. There is no shortage of CD ripper applications, including no shortage of free ones.
