Re: ripping an audio cd

Hey Sandy.


Ok, I don’t know how your computer is set up or what oS you are using, but it should work something like this.


Put CD in drive.


There are a few ways to navigate to the drive using file explorer, but in my view the quickest and best is to type windows key + r, to open the run box, and type in your CD drive letter followed by a : (colon) character. So for example, mine is F:, so I would type

Windows + r.

Then “f:” without the quotes.

A window should open showing you the files and folders on that cd. Find the one(s) you want, using arrow keys, search box, or whatever. With your cursor on the file, type ctrl-c.


It doesn’t really matter when you do this particualr step, but you’ll need to also have a window open with the folder you want to place/copy the files into. So open your documents, or wherever you want the file to go. You can use that run command to do that too, if you want.

Now, after you pressed ctrl-c, alt-tab over to that window that is the destination you want the files to be placed in.

Hit ctrl-v. This pastes whatever you copied from the other window, into the current one.

Note that you can select multiple files at a time using shift + arrow keys as well.

Hope this helps a little bit.

No, ripping a CD is taking the audio data (still digital) and transferring it to a PC-readable format like wav or mp3, at which point you can do whatever you want with it using your computer.

Text files and documents exist on your CD like they would a floppy disk. This is not an audio CD, but a data CD. All you have to do is put it in your drive and copy the files, using File Explorer. No ripping involved.

it’s not a music cd, but a cd of an appointment to a doctor, but I take it that it’s done the same

Here are instructions for using windows media player to rip a cd

Music should start to play, if windows media is your default player.

if not open media player

the first selection should be music,arrow down until you hear the name of the cd

at the name of the cd press tab twice

all of the tracks of the cd are listed and view each one by arrowing up and down

check each one that you want to rip

by default all tracks are checked

5, press ctrl+3, and tab until the rip button is reached

enter on the rip button.
