Ripping Mp3s to Comp

I have Windows Media Player, which currently rips my cds in WMA format. However, I want them to be ripped in mp3 format....sooo, Media Player gives me the option of downloading one of three programs to do this. They are:

MP3 PowerEncoder - 170KB
Created By: Cyberlink Corp
Player Version: 9 Series XP Copy music to your PC into MP3 format with Windows Media Player.


MP3 XPack - 170KB
Created By: Intervideo, Inc.
Player Version: 9 Series XP The MP3 XPackô instantly adds the versatility of MP3 encoding (or 'ripping') to Windows Media Player with full support for features such as media information and folder creation.


CinePlayer MP3 Creation Pack - 170KB
Created By: Sonic Solutions, Inc
Player Version: 9 Series XP Create your own MP3 library by instantly adding high quality MP3 encoding (ripping) to your Windows Media player.


I have NO idea which one is best, or if there is any difference.

So do I choose # 1,2, or 3?

I use CDex. Quite painless. And quite free. No opinion on the above three though, so sorry. Doesn't seem to be much difference htough.

I use cdex for ripping and Nero for burning. I've never had a problem with either.
