    Greetings all,
    first post to this newsgroup. I bought one of the plugins for Media player 9
    on WXP to encode/rip mp3 files from cds. Suppose I have some WAV files - how
    can I CONVERT them from WAV to MP3 with Windows Media Player 9? Can this be
    done?

    Seems like I've already paid for the _decoder_, I should be able to _deccode_
    whatever I like, regardless of format. Of course I could burn the WAV files
    to CD, then "RIP" it from there to MP3 but that's a sucky option.

    WMP doesn't do conversions - it's a player, not an encoder. There's various
    dedicated applications out there that do a great job of conversion. Google
    for 'em if you'd like 'em... =)
