I have completed the first step to archive my CDs... They are all in FLAC format now, on my PC drive.

Now, I want to have MP3 files for my iPod.

People told me to use Foobar with LAME. I have installed Foobar: Have placed LAME.exe in the same directory as Foobar, and foo_clienc.dll in the component folder. I think I'm ready to process (??)

The problem is, when I want to choose the bitrate, I don't see settings like 128kbps, 160kbps, 192kbps, etc... (as I was used to see when I was using EAC+LAME)

What I see, related to MP3 / LAME, is:

Commandline Encoder : LAME --alt-preset medium
Commandline Encoder : LAME --alt-preset standard
Commandline Encoder : LAME --alt-preset extreme
Commandline Encoder : LAME --alt-preset insane

I wanted to encode in MP3 192kbps. I don't see that setting.

Some people asked me (earlier on this forum) why I wanted to encode in 192kbps instead of 192kbps VBR... I don't know. The sound VS the file size at 192kbps => good for me. But I don't know about the VBR... Is the sound really better in 192kbps VBR? If so, and the files would be about the same size as 192kbps, Let's go!! How do I do it? I don't see this setting!!!

I know there's a lot of information on this site about my questions, but I am getting confused with all (a lot of) the details... I am very new at this, and I'm looking for very simple information.


Thanks again for helping me,


norton

I have started to rip my FLAC files into MP3 using Foobar2000. But, at the output, Foobar2000 have haded 001, 002, 003, etc... At the beginning of each of my filenames.

How can I disable that? What are the settings? (Where?)

thanks,

norton
