i want to use windows media player to rip to mp3's, not WMA's. I found the tweak that let me set up the mp3 stuff in there but it gave me an error when i tried it that said: Windows Media Player cannot play the file. One or more codecs required to play the file cannot be found. when i click on more help, it says that no more help is available. now i know someone, somewhere got it to work. what else do i need to download (a codecs?) to get this to work? or do i need to rip to WAV first, then mp3? ... if so, how? see... im even confusing myself now. i just wanna be able to pop in a CD, and rip to mp3 (for free hopefully). any help is appreciated.
