MP3等格式幾乎成為現在音樂檔的最通用格式，手邊有一堆CD的人很苦惱如何在隨身聽、電腦中隨時播放不同CD片的歌曲，若是能將CD轉換成數位檔就好辦，FreeRIP MP3就為此而生；他可以將CD的軌道直接擷取與編碼再存成您要的類型，更妙的是，他會自動從 CDDB的資料庫抓取歌曲資訊，讓您不用再一首一首去找，而且在轉換之前，可將 ID3 標籤直接填入再轉換；而目前它支援的格式有：
* Ogg Vorbis
還有喔，若是您的電腦不支援 Ogg Vorbis ( .ogg )，也可以利用他載入外掛來播放喔！
FreeRIP is a Windows application that lets you extract audio CD tracks and save them to Wav, MP3, WMA, Ogg Vorbis or FLAC audio files (this process is known as ripping). FreeRIP is also a audio file and MP3 converter and it can convert audio files from one of the named formats to another. E.G. FreeRIP can convert a WAV file to MP3 or a FLAC file to MP3, or an MP3 file to WAV and so on.
Converting your CD audio collection to digital audio files is a breeze with FreeRIP: download and install FreeRIP, put your audio CD into your computer's CD drive, run FreeRIP and click on the Rip button.
Once you have your digital audio tracks in your preferred format, just move them onto an audio player (e.g. a portable MP3 player such as an Apple iPod™, Creative Zen Player™ or Sony Walkman™), an advanced mobile phone, or burn them to a CD to listen in your car, stereo or Discman™.
With FreeRIP you can save tracks as CD quality WAV files or encode them to a lossy (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, WMA) or lossless (FLAC) audio format.
FreeRIP is also an advanced MP3 audio file tag editor (supporting ID3 v1 and v2) and includes shortcuts to find track info (like lyrics or complete title) on the web, with just one click.
