Unhappy MP3 Encoding - Please Help


I have a huge collection of CDs that I would like to encode into MP3, however, I cannot seem to get this working with Grip. It says Invalid Encoder Executible, check encorder config.

Any idea on steps to get this configured correctly? Please Help.

Now I know all of you want me to use ogg but here is the deal, ogg is not read by my MP3 player in my car (rockford fosgate) so I need the MP3 configuration on a julian formatted cd to work.

Did you check your encoder config? Do you have mp3 support installed, like mpg123 and or lame?

I know MPG123 is not installed, I see lame in the GRIP application. Where is the config file? Should I install the MPG 123?
