Import question? Songs from Legit CDs will not play in live? Downloaded songs will?

For some reason I can only import songs that I have downloaded.  When I try to import a song that I have ripped from a CD from the artist, ableton won't even recognize it as a song, and therefore, it will not let me import them.

I know there must be some way to get around this, but I haven't found a straight answer...

    use the free software "switch sound file converter" or some other free file converter software downloadto convert the file to "wav" format. then drag the wav file onto an audio track in ableton.
