Easiest way to turn a CD track into MP3?

My band is having singer auditions, and we want the applicants to send us files before we do a live audition.

Its amazing how many singers don't have an audio or video track on MySpace or YouTube. One guy has a CD he recorded, but doesn't know how to put it in his computer and save a song as an MP3 - anyone have a solution?

Thanks - but I could use a more "step by step" answer since I have to relay it to someone else who needs to know because they don't know how to do such things.

Open with iTunes then right click. A menu will pop up with selections. Select "Create MP3 Version", done!

If he had I-tunes, it's hard to imagine he would know how to do this. If he is a windows boy, open media player, insert c/d, select rip/format/mp3.
After he rips it to his library, rt mouse click on track and select email. Hopefully he has his email set up.

Hope this helps.

Windows Media player does it. Just put the CD in and look for the RIP button to start it. It's there somewhere.

Not amazing, IMO. I've come to realize that most "singers" aren't singers. They do a little karaoke & sing in the shower and then answer CL ads. Unless they are working with bands they likely won't have anything.

As for your guy, as pointed out, pretty much any audio program will convert to MP3. Or he can drop a CD in the mail.

If you have to hold someone's hand to get them to an audition.....

Thanks for all the answers.... I had another guy who was definitely is a Karaoke singer. But in this case the CD the guy wanted me to hear was of him singing on a cover band demo they did in the studio.

I hate holding anyone's hand with computer issues, and because I am tech-oriented I tech to be put in that position all the time.
