Real Player has a feature to convert wav/Audio CD's to MP3.  Winamp has the capabilities of converting MP3 back to wav.  There are programs out there called Audo Catalyst, Or Audio Grabber that will convert Wav/audio to MP3.  But those two you will have to pay for them.  They may have demo versions you can try.
Here are some links to check out....

This should be a link to CD Audio type of programs.  Rippers and Mp3 convertors.

Xing- creators of audio catalyst has a demo available:

My personal favorite is Audacity, it's an open-source application for Windows, (Unix is also available). Check it out at http://audacity.soundforge.net

It's very fast and powerful.

Thanks!

I also found that my Rio Audio Port Program will do this if I save the files in mp3 format.
