CD to MP3

I have been using Wave corrector to transfer some of my LP records to CD reasonably successfully.

Having recently obtained a small MP3 player, I ripped some of these Cd's to Mp3 format to download to the player.

Playing these tracks on the MP3 player there was poor sound quality caused by regular loud clicks. These were not present on the record or the CD generated from it.

Is this a sensible approach? Should I use the lame encoder to get better results?

Any other ideas would be welcome.

Thanks, JDC

It sounds as though your ripping progam is bweing affected by errors on the CD. I'd advise using a program called Exact Audio Copy. This is avery good ripping program that does multiple re-trys when it encounters an error.

Thanks Derek,

Tried this and found that MP3 files were created without the distortion. The Exact audio Copy required the Lame converter to be installed.

By the way I was using CDburnerXP Pro 3 a free program found on the net.
