Over the years I've used iTunes, CDEX and flirted with WMP but since it was bad then I never looked back.

the basic of this are...ripping/capturing the cd audio from the cd to you computer harddrive, then convert these files to mp3 or what ever format that you preferred. There are lots of software out there that can do this. Take a look at the Cnet download section here.

No need even to download a program.

Windows Media Player can do it. Assuming the OP has Windows (he didn't tell) he already has that. But iTunes and CDEX, mentioned by Bob already, are fine also.
