I want to continue to use XP WMP9 to play my mp3's. I rip them from CD at 192CBR using a decoder addon from cyberlink that does the job in minutes and is totally integrated.
What I have found out from you guys is that the EAC / LAME method would be better. But this would not be compatable with MP, is that correct. If so, what would be the best choice for ripping / decoding to work with MP9
