i actually use and personally i really like cd da its a awesome program. and those that use it will know what i mean (if you like it that is lol) someone i know is looking for a program exactly like this but just doesnt know if they can spend 50$ on it as they are battling major medical bills among other things. so the question is anything out there either free or very cheap that will do the same and work as well while doing it? one thing about cd da is it just works and will convert just about anything as far as audio goes, also it can change the bit rate on mp3's either making them smaller or larger (imo pointless to go larger as once its compressed not much will make it sound better) they want to make songs really small to go on their phone etc... also things like working with track names is awesome with cd da. anyway any thoughts on something comparable? they will NOT use nero so please do not suggest it even the older smaller versions as nero seriously messed up their system and they refuse to install anything to do with nero. i showed them how to burn a audio disc from mp3 with imgburn and it works fine but imgburn of course doesnt do all the other things cd da does as far as audio goes. they also dont want to use a half dozen free tools to be able to handle that stuff. thanks in advance for any help.
