OK I'm a total MP3 noob. I have some assorted MP3 files on my hard drive, most of which I dislike, and are probably illegal files downloaded by my kids from Kazaa. Most of the music that I like is on CD.
I have researched some and discovered that I can rip my CDs to .wav files, and then encode them to MP3. Then add the data and artwork. Seems time consuming.
Can "albums" be purchased as MP3s with artwork etc.? If I have to encode my own from CD where do I get the artwork, track and title info, etc.?
Can MP3s still be downloaded from Kazaa etc.?? Does anyone use an old MP3-whore PC for this purpose specifically? I won't dare download file-sharing software to my primary PC.
Thanks for the help!!
