What's a not too complicated way of converting music CD's to mp3 files?

So far I failed using lame: I could create wav files and play them with x11amp.
The mp3 output of lame, however, is a sound-less mp3 file.
Here is the output from 'lame a.wav a.mp3':

LAME version 3.93 MMX (
CPU features: i387, MMX (ASM used), SIMD
Using polyphase lowpass filter, transition band: 15115 Hz - 15648 Hz
Encoding a.wav to a.mp3
Encoding as 44.1 kHz 128 kbps j-stereo MPEG-1 Layer III (11x) qval=2
Frame | CPU time/estim | REAL time/estim | play/CPU | ETA
23016/23019 (100%)| 2:34/ 2:34| 3:16/ 3:16| 3.8807x| 0:00
average: 128.0 kbps LR: 1381 (5.999%) MS: 21638 (94.00%)

Writing LAME Tag...done

Using x11amp mp3 player, the output file has nothing but silence and a scratchy
'blurp' every now and then.

Any idea what's going wrong here?


What does:

$plaympeg a.mp3

get you?
