Default Cannot Bounce MP3, demo period may have expired. Need help

When I try to bounce by MP3 file type at the end of my recording session I get a display that says,

The MP3 option cannot be emabled because: Module inilization failed for MP3 dll. The MP3 demo period may have expired.

I've got the Pro Tools M-Powered Essentials version. Am I needing something else to bounce/save my session as MP3 to burn to cd. If onthing else is needed, what do I need to do to complete me project. Thanks

Export as WAV and then use another program to convert to MP3, like iTunes. Also, WAVs can be directly burned as CD Audio. Not sure why you'd convert to MP3 before burning to CD since MP3 is a lossy format.

Agreed. I always bounce at the sample rate/bit depth of the session and create MP3 versions in Wavelab(they have an "essentials" version for $99 that might be a nice addition to your system). As said, don't make mp3's for CD burning(you want 16 bit, 44.1K Stereo Interleaved files for making audio CD's).
