Any good music converters

I have a ton of original CD’s but I want them in MP3 format, I searched for quite a while, but to no avail. I tried MusicConverter, All Converter and after these long downloads I’m frustrated they don’t really work. Does anybody have a suggestion? Please tell me about it THANKS! And try to make the download of the file no more than 50 megs…(Cause I have dialup)

try this with the LAME encoder…

And if you want lossless audio, try Monkey Audio (APE extension)
