I don't know what you have as far as a computer, but here is how I do it. I have an iMac and using iTunes I just copy my CDs into it then it is a simple matter of making up playlists with the songs I want and then just syncing it up with my iPhone. I have bluetooth stereo system in my truck so I no longer have to carry around CDs.

I have a cd burner in my computer.
I stick a disc in.
There are various programs you can use to copy to a file. Windows has one of those.

If you have an mp3 player, once you get all your music on the computer, you can hook your mp3 player to your computer and copy the songs to it.

Express Burn Disc Burning Software is free. Download it on the link from their home page.

Put your cd in your computer's dvd player, then use Express Burn to convert the files into MP3 files. Those are what you can save to ipods and such.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

As mentioned, there's a lot of choices, depending upon your computer OS. Assuming you've got a PC, Windows Media Player is good for learning with. When configured to your tastes, WMP can retrieve album information and compose playlists. Additionally, you can choose to save music as WMA or MP3, and playlists in WPL or M3U format. Third-party software gives even more options for formats, but to learn on, stick with something like WMP or iTunes.

Later, if you really want to get serious, mp3tag is a freeware program that lets you do extensive metadata changes such as embedding lyrics files. MusicBrainz Picard is another freeware that will fill in metadata that WMP and iTunes don't cover.

Have fun and learn-and then try DVDs, next.
