Hey there, This is relatively simple. There are two scenarios. 1) You have media on the CD, that you want in MP3 format back on your computer. From OS X, if you have iTunes (comes preinstalled) you can rip the CD into media files in your choice of .aac and .mp3 format. 2) If you need to get talking tapes into MP3 files, that are live recorded or any other "talking" form -> You can use Audacity OS X (Freeware - google it) to save those files to .mp3 or burn them to a CD. Hope this helps, Joey ----- Adding onto what Joey had said... Using iTunes, you can convert your CD (Aiff) format into an MP3 format using the following steps: 1, Open iTunes 2. Choose "iTunes" (on menu bar) 3. Choose "Preferences" 4. Choose "General" Tab 5. Click "Import settings" 6. Choose "import using: MP3 encoder" 7. Choose "settings: 192 (best quality)" 8. Click "OK" 9. Highlight the song(s) you'd like to convert 10. choose "Advanced" (on menu bar) 11. click "Create MP3" iTunes will now convert your CD (AIff) format into an MP3 format. - Carlo
