My son wants my Metallica CD collection on his Kindle Fire. Problem is I dont know how to transfer the files to MP3 format. I have done it in the past (so I can put them on my phone) but that was with Windows XP. My question is is there anyway to do it using Windows 7?

You can do it with iTunes.

do you have the audio files in another format or only the CD?
if you have the files you only need a file conversion tool(I use FormatFactory, because it's free), if you have only the CD I think Windows Media Player can do it(unless the CD is copy protected)

Use Windows Media Center to rip the CD. There should be a setting to use the MP3 format.

I had fun once and it was awful.

You can still use iTunes without owning anything else of theirs, it's pretty simple to use. Otherwise I recommend http://cdexos.sourceforge.net .

@GuSilverFlame: Yeah I only have them in CD format cause I bought them before the MP3 craze hit lol.

@Swiket: Can it only be done by ripping the CDs? I thought you could do convert them if you have the files saved on your PC.

The songs. I mean I remember doing it from the list of songs that I had (again this was on Windows XP) I would just right click on the song and under all the other tools listed there was one that said convert. However when I do that now I don't see an option to convert.

I love music, and I used Exact Audio Copy to rip my CD collection to my music server. It takes a little work to set up but will give you perfect files every time (no skips or ticks), and compress to MP3 or FLAC if you want. If you want simplicity then ignore me...

Try using this : http://www.cuetools.net/wiki/CUERipper

(Its supposed to be easier to use than EAC).

For playback use either - Foobar2000 or Boom - http://perkele.cc/software/boom

(It is made by somebody who understands sound properly which seems to be quite an uncommon thing).

Click on the zip one -> extract all and then run Cueripper.exe

click at the bottom where it says lossless and change it to lossy.

then one down and one across where it says VBR change it to CBR and then move it from 256 to 320. (Don't know what the V levels mean but 320 is the maximum so might as well use CBR. It is still small).

Then just press Go.
