.cda to mp3 Conversion
I have a few copied CDs on my hard disk and want to convert them into mp3 files. Is there a free software that'll do this for me? Almost all the ones I've tried require a CD to be in the CD drive for the conversion to begin.
BTW, I have Nero. If there's a way to do what I want with it then I'll be glad to know how

I believe WMP can do this. I use a small app called altomp3. very simple 3 clicks and youre done.

So they are on the hdd as cda? They need to be ripped from the cd to mp3. Or am I missing something here?

I'm with rik, PC can't store files in cda (as far as I know) CDA is CD Audio tracks on the CD. If you rip a CD its stored as WAV or some other format.
So rohitk89 did you copy a CD to your HD ? burn it to CD then rip it with Exact Audio Copy to MP3 with Lame.
I don't know maybe I'm missing alot WTH did you do rohitk ???

cda files are only 1k i believe and thus do not contain any audio. Just put your discs in to copy again. If you lost your discs you will need to buy them again and rip to wan or mp3. cda are the track listing and the files on a cd are in accasible due to copyright counter implementations.
did I say that?

Via My Computer. Copied and pasted them into a folder on the desktop.
