Anyway, when I attempt to rip CD to hard drive with MM, I get the following message:
"Due to licensing restrictions, the free version of MediaMonkey can not bundle MP3 encoding functionality beyond a 30 day trial period".
(It then goes on to say if I want unrestricted MP3 encoding please upgrade)
Guys could you please give me a plain English translation of what this means? Thanks.

I think I favour the 'rip CD' option, my only choice being whether to pay for MM Gold for this purpose, or use FREE CD Ripper. Teknojnky, may I ask- you mentioed that MM Gold has many extra features, what are (some of) these? That will help me decide whether to get MM Gold, or just use the FREE CD Ripper software. Thanks again everyone!
