First you need to transfer your minidisc to your PC; the only way to that is, as far as I know, in real-time (even netmd doesnt support upload any faster than real-time); you need to hook up your minidisc unit to the line-in of your soundcard; you need some kind of recording software, to record your minidisc as a .wav-file; I think "pro tools free" will do the job, but there are couple of other options; http://www.digidesign.com/ptfree/

then you need to transfer the wave-file to mp3 format, you need some encoder, there are couple around, freeware is no problem, I would recommend the freeware lame encoder http://mitiok.free.fr/

hope this helps

edit: I only gave you the lame codec; you need a "wav2mp3"-programme to be complete; click on "software that use lame" on the mitiok-site, or try google
