MP3 is a compressed CD Audio Quality sound file.
And even though it is so compressed, it still sounds as good as the original
file that it was compressed from. Also with this data reduction by
using Layer 3, one minute of CD Quality stereo music needs only around 1
MB, without audible degradation. Otherwise it would be taken a 12 MB storage
capacity. For playing these files, you need special software for decoding
the audio stream. For WIN95 get the MP3 player WinAmp. I think it's
the best. It has the coolest features from all MP3 players
You can get this player at http://www.winamp.com. Also
get some of the skins and plugins too. They are cool.
So, with MP3 a CD-ROM may contain over 10 hours
CD Quality stereo music!

Making an Mp3
All you need is recorder that will make a WAV file
form a cd, and an encoder that will make this wav file to MP3 file.
Now let's say that you recorded a song from your CD
, the wav file that you made will be between 30-60 MB because you recorded
it in the best quality. Now after you did the hard work, its time for
the easy part. All you have to do is download an mp3 compressor for
windows here and
install the program. It is so easy to figure out how to take a wav
file and make it an mp3 file that anyone can do it. After the mp3 file
is made then you can delete the wav file to save space. You can delete
the wav file now.
