MP3 Decoder

I want an MP3 decoder so that I can decompress MP3 files and burn them onto a CD. I've found several free programs but when I attempt to download my security software warns me either that it is a program that could harm my computer or that it is a site showing suspicious activity. Can anyone suggest a download that they've used without problem? Thank you.

Re: MP3 Decoder

It's already built in to Windows - Windows Media Player. No need for any third party utilities

Doh! Trust me to over-complicate anything technical, sometimes I think I would have done better to stick with vinyl and film for my sound and vision!

Re: MP3 Decoder

John, I wasn't clear from the question on whether you wanted to burn an audio cd or a data cd. The latter is just a bunch of mp3 (data) files on a disc but will play on most DVD players or any CD player marked mp3 compatible. The former will require conversion of the mp3 files so you must make sure that you tick the appropriate box (or select the correct action) as the the default if you just drag and drop a bunch of (data) files will be data disk.

I want to burn MP3 files onto a CD that can be played on a normal CD player, i.e. a player that is not MP3 compatible. Through research I learned that the MP3 files must first be decoded/uncompressed but until Ian mentioned it I didn't realize that Windows Media Player does this automatically. I've now tested it and it works!
