Extract Music from Audio CD (to MP3)

I had to extract audio from an audio CD to MP3 format. It took quite a while to find a free program that does this (or at least comes pretty close). Mpeg Streamclip by Squared 5


  1. Copy DAT files from the audio cd to your hard drive.
  2. Rename DAT files to MPG. (I'm not sure if this step is required..)
  3. Download Mpeg Streamclip.
  4. Run the MPG files through Mpeg Streamclip using Export Audio, export to AIFF.
  5. Add the AIFF files to iTunes.
  6. Choose these audio in iTunes and make MP3 versions of them (say, by right-clicking on them and choosing "make MP3" or the like).
