Newbie....DVD to MP3 Pl. help

Hi All,

First of all thanks for having such a great forum.

I’m new to this DVD,CD SVCD,VCD game. To start with, I wanted to convert my music DVD to MP3. Here is what I did so far…

  1. used smartripper ro rip DVD.
  2. used DVD2AVI to generate ac3 files.

Now I’m confused…how do i make mp3 and burn it on cd ?

Another question, My laptop has microphone jack. can I use it as audio input from my dvd player and copy audio tracks to harddisk ? If yes, do i need other programs ?
