Making music files

Hi
Wonder if anyone can help me out with this. I've been putting photos on CD's and want to add a music track.Between the software that I'm using and the dvd player which I intend to use to show it on my regular TV, my best bet seems to be an mp3 format.

How can I take a audio CD that I have ( which I think is in a wav format-not sure though) and convert a particular song into a mp3 file so that I can import it into the slide show. All I know about audio CD's is that when I insert one in a drive it plays music.

Anyway, I went online to do a search for conversion software or even to download an mp3 file and what a disaster! Some of those music sites were really pretty bad and it took me quite a while to clean up my computer.

Any suggestions?
Thanks.
Paulette

my sympathy

I tried to figure out how to download mp3s from several sites, don't know where they went on my computer, somewhere, but I could never figure it out.
I have a neat little program that you can put photos into to show and you can add mp3s to it but it never worked for me.
Good luck, let us no if you are successful.

Platcsha,
They were probably dl'd into the programs own default directory. Go to the folder in windows explorer and you might find a separate folder with your music in it.

Another way to find your mp3's (or anything on your computer) is to go to start>find files (search or whatever your operating system)and type in mp3 and hit enter - you'll end up with a list of all the mp3's on your computer and their locations.

I've been researching a few slide show programs and the one I'm
trying now is one called tvcd( I have a free trial download). The important thing for me is that the CD's I create will be viewable on a dvd hooked up to a regular TV. There are a few new programs out there which seem to offer what I want so it's really just coming up with one that gives me the least problem.

.....on to search for music files on my hard drive- thanks MIG-never thought of that

Paulette, just be aware that the resolution on a TV is much lower than a monitor, so your pics may not look too wonderful on the TV. A better bet would be to use a data projector connected to a laptop.

While researching, you should also check whether whatever you're putting onto the CD can be played in a standalone DVD player. My feeling is that you'd probably have to make a DVD movie for your idea to work.

you might not have to actually, I've tried burning videos in Mpeg format on Cd-R and my brother was able to play it in his friends DVD player. (but the video has to be in .MPG since .AVI files will not work that way)
