Need help converting wav to mp3

Please bear with me, I'm not sharing torrents converted to mp3 with others but I do need to rip wav files to mp3.

I need help, say I d/l a torrent, I want to listen to it before I burn it on a cd-r, well for my situation, the best way for me to listen to all of these torrents is (sadly) on an mp3 player. I really can only get to listen to tunes in my car or on my mp3 player and my catch-22 is that I can't listen in my car unless it is already on a cd(cd-r).

My problem is that I can't find any programs that will rip wav files to mp3 files unless the wav file is on a cd! I can't seem to find a program that lets me drag and drop wav files from my hard drive. There has to be a better way, it's a real pain to burn wav files to a cd-rw, then convert to mp3. I have tried Windows Media player, EAC, Audiograbber and Feurio and unless I'm missing something in all of these programs, they do not allow one to load wav files directly from a hard drive unless you are burning a cd.

if you want to just play them, you dont have to convert to mp3. you can get foobar player and it will play the files direct from the torrent.

THe free edition of Db poweramp will convert them to mp3...but it will then delete them...not recomended.

On the rare occasions that I make this conversion I use the old school Mkw program as it is a simple drag and drop.

I use Easy CD-DA Extractor. It can convert all of the audio formats without a problem.

In my opinion the best solution would be to set up foobar2000 with the LAME mp3 encoder. This will let you transcode from any lossless format that foobar2000 can read directly to mp3.

I'd use iTunes...as much as it isn't exactly a professional application, it's super easy to use and very user friendly...



cheers, calvin
