Ok i have Sound Juicer and have followed the instructions regarding editing the new profile as per the help files. I still don't see an option to select in the Output Format selection drop down menu. However it does say at the bottom of the help page "This profile uses the LAME MP3 encoder, so you will need to have the GStreamer LAME plugin installed." SO.. where do i get it and how do i install it?
Sorry for the daft questions but i'm bad enough with windows, let alone this stuff!!
I really don't understand the other suggestions you made regarding 'Synaptic' so for now i think i'll leave that!!
