I have some CDs with copy protection that I would like to rip to MP3s.
I have Ableton Live Lite 10 - so used it to record the Audio from the tracks - then thought I could Export the audio as MP3 from Ableton.
It sort-of worked - but created a file with a ".mp3.als" extension which tries to open in Ableton.
So, I changed the extension to ".mp3" and tried to open it in Windows Media Player, but got "Invalid File" or similar.
It's interesting though, because the file is the right size for an mp3, and when I tried it with Wav and Flac files, they were also the kind of size you would expect them to be - but with the same result.
Any idea how I can make an mp3 that is playable normally, either using Ableton or something else?
