I'm after a CD ripper for Windows (I'd be prepared to spend a few bobs/cents on it, if necessary) to convert to .wav and possibly other formats. I'm fond of classical music so ideally it should do a reasonable job with quality. I'd like to compile my own CDs with favourite extracts from CDs borrowed from friends and family.
I have a doubt in my mind: if I were to use Windows Media Player to rip to .wma files (from what I can judge, it doesn't offer other formats) - would .wma be as good a format as .wav? If it is, perhaps I can do without a CD ripper and use an audio burning tool with these .wma files.
I'm not exactly computer-competent and feel rather out of my depth, but if I find a good soul who'd give me a few hints, I might be able to achieve something
