    Hi. I am finally ripping my cd collection and digitizing it. I am using
    Windows Media Player 11 on Windows XP Home Edition. I have all the updates,

    Does ripping in MP3's have a constant-bit rate? I swear I saw the option in
    the options tab somewhere, but only the .wma files seem to have constant bit
    rate or variable bit rate.

    I know some ripping programs have the cbr or vbr choice for mp3's. What is
    it in the wma 11 player? I can't find anything in the help topics for the
    program or on the pages in the links from the help file. Maybe I missed
    something, I doubt it though.

    Thank you.

    As media player allows ripping only in wma you cannot rip in mp3. My
    suggestion will be to rip in WMA as it takes half the space for the same
    quality of mp3 file. And secondly use VBR so that bitrate will be adjusted as
    required by the music. You will nowhere lose the quality.
