    In Windows Media 10, how do I rip a song to make it a MP3 format instead of WMA?

    I'd like to find out too. I had to play them and record them, then save them as mp3. There's got to be an easier way.

    I have always used MusicMatch with good results for ripping and burning.

    I bought it eons ago, and have the unlimited license, but in their newer versions I have seen too much stuff "installed" that I didn't want, Radio, Advertisements, Shopping, etc. It's not bad, just a lot to wade through to rip a song or burn an image.

    I still like th overall way it works, and will continue to use it until something else comes along that is cleaner and better. (There might be something already out there that is better and cleaner, but I haven't looked)

    That might be where I've had trouble with it before. Some of the music files are licensed files.

    I think I figured it out...
    in WMP 10, click on tools > options > Rip> under format, click on MP3 in the pull down window > apply.

    I'm trying it now.

    (edited to say.... IT WORKED)
