Default Ripping cds

What is a good program to rip high quality mp3s from cds? I used to used Cool Edit 2.0 to rip cds, I can use Windows Media Player I suppose, but I was wondering if there is something better out there which is free.

Personally I just use Windows Media player and set it to MP3, at 192-250kbps usually. Its easier than using a seperate program, though I use Winamp to listen to music.

I just use media player, I mean what ever program you use is going to do basically the same thing as far as ripping a cd to mp3 format is concerned

I'll give Windows Media Player a try. I'm just not fond of it because wma music files sound pretty crappy to me so I never bothered with it. But it seems like your right about the mp3 ripping though.

WMP is fine but if you want an alternative you can use NERO

WMP is usually what I use to rip CDs. If you're a real audiophile, you could always change the settings to rip the CDs to a lossless format rather than the default MP3 setting.
